" Graffiti Aftermath "
Material & Technique:
Bone China Porcelain, Glaze, Paint, Oxidised Silver/ Slip Casting.
My work crosses boundaries between Fine Art, Sculpture and Jewellery.
Utilising a range of processes, I create one of a kind sculptural jewellery made from Bone China.
Each piece is an artistic expression of observations and interactions with my daily environment.
The forms are both bold and simple, whilst exhibiting painterly and tactile qualities.
I like disguising the identity of the material, providing an element of surprise when the viewer handles my work.
It’s through touch and closer inspection that the material shares its identity,
encouraging the wearer to examine presumptions surrounding fragility and strength.
My practice is quite intuitive, the material and process dictating the final outcome.
The Kiln becomes the third hand in the making process, the initial steps of making controlled by me,
the latter controlled by the kiln.
Not knowing what each piece will look like until the kiln door opens can be both uplifting and demoralizing,
its this partial loss of control in my practice that I find quite exciting.
