I have been influenced by natural textures such as coral and volcanic formations and the way in which water and lava flow, interact and are affected by different surfaces.

The priciple desire is to view the pieces from above as one would with rock pools and coral reefs. Their form accentuates the inside texture but when water flows over the egde, the eye is led to appreciaite the outside.

My use of thicker glazes reflects both tidal and volcanic flows.

As water enhances these natural surfaces and it has also influenced my research, it naturally enhances my work both when flowing and when still.
