In my studio practice I construct ceramic forms that capture, transmit, obstruct and redirect light to exploit its qualities in an ongoing exploration of material and vision. I use light to attract and locate the viewer, to provide an unexpected sense of discovery, and to address notions of conceptual and intellectual illumination. Recent residencies in Jingdezhen, China have allowed me to explore new material possibilities such as physical vapour deposition (PVD). Without depicting a specific event, object or place, I aim to capture a sense of the sublime in order to hold the viewer’s attention and trigger their imagination.
