As Time Goes By

As Time Goes By

As Time Goes By

Using classical shapes and iconography, this series is a meditation on time passing – a reminder that our time is limited and how we fill it is what defines us. Birth is a new hope, death a reset and time the barometer of what is accomplished in between. The ravens that feature on these pots play different roles in traditional folklore. Most commonly they are portents of death but also act as mediators between the realms of the living and the dead.

Tell Me a Tale

Tell Me a Tale

Tell me a Tale

Tales of mythology and folklore survive because they reveal something about us. They take us to untamed regions where reality is subverted and we glimpse our true natures. They provide us heroes whose journeys teach us to be brave. They show us the perils of hubris and that our path may be lonely and approval hard won. These works operate as cautionary tales exploring contemporary themes.

Back To Baroque

Back To Baroque

Back to Baroque

The baroque was a period of excess in clothing, architecture, furnishings and design. We have entered a new age of baroque, where the byword is ‘bling’, more is never enough and perception is sold as reality. This series, originally titled ‘Dressing the Dummies’, is an investigation in clay of excess using the costumes of a bygone era to reflect upon modern day vanities.

Prayers For a Small Planet

Prayers For a Small Planet

Prayers for a Small Planet

My first pot in this series exploded in the kiln. I saw it as a metaphor for the fragile state of our planet. Generations of ecological abuse has left it degraded. Overabundance for the few leaves a legacy of poverty for the many. Religious and political fanaticism replace honest discourse. The coils in these pots can be seen as trajectories, each with a different outcome. On a visit to Palo Alto, I see our best hope, but it will amount to nothing if we don’t have a planet to inhabit.
