I am continuously exploring what we choose to eat, why, how it gets to our tables and how our relationship with food shapes the way see and treat our planet.
I choose to fire my work using the atmospheric wood-fire process to create varied and organic surfaces. Wood-firing embodies and reaffirms the ideas of nature, environment, history, ritual and community held within the work. The process incorporates experimentation, skillfulness, knowledge and an intimacy over time. The atmospheric effects often blur and obscure intended surface work which mimics the distance and obscurity in the connections we have with our nourishment today.
