CERAMICS

 

My practice is centred upon an enquiry into the theme of pleionexia – the desire to consume or have ‘more’ – to be bigger, better, superior to others – even if that means draining the world of power, wealth, pleasure and being.

I am infatuated with the intrinsic qualities of the ceramics medium that goes beyond its pliability and ability to mimic almost anything. It has an alchemy that is compelling and unpredictable.

My ceramics are mostly hand built, using white earthenware and underglaze colours. Some of them are combined with other materials (tubes, wire, chain, metal drums etc) or they incorporate found ceramics that I inherited from my mother in law. There is more information about them in the blog posts.

DRAWINGS

Most of these drawings are illustrations to my positioning paper – I used water colour and pen and ink, sometimes adding text digitally. Like the ceramic pieces there is more information about them and their references in the blog.
