My work has always been influenced by the natural world: humans, mammals, insects etc…the structural and architectural aspect within life.

These life forms are amazingly elaborate and beautiful in shape and variety. I am concerned with the balance of volumes and proportions, their strength and structure.

These last years I have hand sculpture pieces out of porcelain and it is in some way the material driving the making process.

I like the purity, the luminosity and fragility it brings to the subject.

There is a certain amount of craft in my interest in attention to detail.

My purpose is to create pieces, which have a sense of beauty but which also have a quality about their mass and volume and capture the essence and energy of the subject.
