Unruly

Ceramic 60cm x30cm x26cm

From Inbetween-ness

Made in response to the Spode Factory site; exploring the liminal, distressed elegance of the Spode factory.


I was selected for the Award exhibition at the British Ceramics Biennial in Stoke on Trent in 2017. This sculpture was part of a collection created in response to an in-between state of consciousness of the space. I was drawn to the ragged shapes and the traces of production burned deep into the fabric of the factory, traces of it’s story gouged upon the ceiling and into the floor.

From Inbetween-ness

I form relationships between my work to create a dialogue. It is a language that springs from the unconscious, a correlation between thought and medium – a piercing, layering and collaging of surfaces that communicate differences, imperfections and an in-between-ness, giving sculpture its fullest expression.

Created intuitively in response to the Spode Factory. The textured surface is drenched in an oil spot glaze originating from the east in the 9th Century during the Song dynasty.

I take an experimental approach to my work, and it is here that my mind becomes a melting and growing nerve centre, registering an in-betweenness, where strange things start to happen, that are often un-controllable.
