  • About me

    I am a Melbourne based ceramic artist with a background in Fine Art (Gold & Silversmithing), Industrial Design and Multimedia. I’m a self-taught ceramicist. I predominately slip cast mid-fired functional and non-functional vessels that pay homage to traditional ceramics.


    The bio-morphic objects I create are initially carved from disposable materials such as foam and cardboard, then translated into ceramic. Something is gained in this translation; somehow more than the evidence of my process, such as the hope and joy that difference can offer. My process highlights the texture of the foam and cardboard and often exaggerates imperfection. I am attracted to flaws and vulnerabilities. The objects have an usual beauty — what I imagine to be some sort of living organism from a planet far away.


    I have completed ceramic residencies in Germany 2017 and Peru 2018.

    Where to find my work

     

     

    I work from my home studio in Preston with my high energy dog Fünf. I take private commissions. In Melbourne I also stock Mr Kitly, Craft Victoria, Boom Gallery, Pepite and Modern Times. Photo Jo Dyer.
