Artist Statement:

Although I have always considered myself a functional potter over the past few years my work has taken a new direction as I am constructing totems for the garden. Following the completion of each construction I stack them one on top of the other and am therefore able to create larger sculptural like statements. Some of the totems are decorative others can be used as either bird baths or to grow plants or herbs. The work is self supporting and although intended for outdoor display can be shown indoors.

Through the process of play, allowing mistakes to occur and learning from them I find working with clay a never ending challenge and source of joy. My work is intended to be playful, whimsical and bring an element of discovery wherever it may be displayed .
