‘For some time I have been making vessel forms, both as objects within themselves; exploring inner spaces in relation to outer skins, and as three dimensional drawings; where open interwoven and knotted forms hold a dialogue with both the fixed planes close by and the linear shadows they cast. Some of these sculptural vessels have emerged as simple bowls where others have become more anthropomorphic and totemic in form.
Their making involves a series of ritual processes; wrapping, binding, layering, piercing, knotting, stitching and suturing. Their forms are determined by a fragile and tenuous combination of elements; breath, tension, balance and materiality. The burnishing, staining, abrading, shadowing and marking of surfaces continues the dialogue I quietly have with each piece, and that which it has in relation to others within a series.’
