My newest body of work, ‘Kindred porcelain’, uses clay to create vessels that have a life of their own. With objects as figures, the forms intend to make contact and have a dialogue with each other as well as the viewer. Made using the process of hand-building and slip-casting, the thinwalled porcelain vessels are subject to different manipulations whilst in their raw soft state and are still malleable, to something with a dynamic sensuality. Dreamed up during the lockdown period of 2020 this body of work speaks to the human craving for affection, connection and closeness and the dangers faced during a global pandemic.
