My work refers to the tradition of tin-glazed earthenware in an oblique way. Although historical examples are usually at the back of my mind, I avoid the maiolica clichés of fruit, birds and flowers drawing my motifs more from abstract expressionism and 1950s textiles than from pottery. I make gestural marks to create rhythm and contrast between form and decoration and between painted and unpainted areas. SEE MY WORK AT THESE EVENTS
