Transition Town Totnes
12 Gaviots Close,
the moment of seeing something and the sense we then
make of it lies a place of questioning. For me it is
the most alive place in our consciousness, bringing
the unconscious to life through processes of
emotional recognition and rationalizing our
references. My work takes the energy of polarities,
formal contradictions, impacts and merging as the
beginning of a journey to this place.
Inspiration comes from many sources - geometry in
the western Mystical Tradition, Vajrayana Buddhism,
the uplifting quality of wild and remote landscapes,
ancient traditions that revere the land and the
Earth's wisdom, among others.
My ceramics have received awards and are in public
collections and museums in U.S.A, Europe and the
. Exhibitions have been held worldwide;
, Europe, the Middle East,
, and featured in books and other publications. I
have taught in Higher Education and offered projects
to schools and to adults and children with special
needs and physical and sensory disabilities.
10 years of not making ceramics I am returning with
new questions and approaches."
