I have been producing ceramic sculpture for the last twenty years and have pieces in collections across the UK and abroad. During this time I have developed a fascination with how one line or form has an effect upon another next to it. Juxtapositions of shape and colour can create wonderful contradictions of power and fragility, stability and precariousness which, to me, always reflect human relationships. Their closeness is tender, but also tentative: sometimes I am creating a balanced structure that seems as if it might topple, but keeps standing.
