" a ceramist, visual artist & design educator "

 

I explore forms, repetitions, earthy tones, time-worn textures, images and texts through clay. I am constantly searching for a fresh perspective and prefer to have an unconventional approach towards the medium. I endeavour to create a visual that is imbued with inherent enigma and evokes viewer’s interaction, a visual begging to be explored and examined in much the same way a child investigates the world with wonder, curiosity and also trepidation. It’s very important to arouse a sense of unease and encourage the viewer to consider carefully what they are seeing- at what is compelling them. I would like my work to exist not as the ubiquitous ‘art object’ but as something more enigmatic – foreign yet familiar handmade yet somehow organic. Rather than suggest nature, in my own way I am seeking to create it.
