I've been making functional work off and on since I first began in ceramics back during my undergrad degree. It's always been the sort of work that I can get lost in, particularly in the process. This porcelain based series I started a few years back while I was doing my masters and i've been developing it since. The principle inspiration for the work is the creation of beautiful handmade objects that can act as a resistance to the disposability of mass consumerism. I like to belive that handmade objects are imbued with a value that can have am impact upon the lives of the users. To me the simple appreciation of the objects that I surround myself with, the rich layers of context, process and traditions that they present allows me to greater appreciate life in general.
