INSTALLATIONS

Clay presents itself in several forms and there is great potential within the material, as well as the chance of imperfection and breakages.

It is strong yet fragile and the ceramic process is special as it lends itself to the idea of capturing an action and preserving memory. With clay

there is risk in all its stages, and also there is a feeling of excitement when you open the kiln door as your mind flits back to its very fist form.

 

The installation process is planned to the point of the structural components being in place. However, the artwork is created on sight in an 

intuitive, instinctive way, so that there is a strong feeling of spontaneity to the work. This feels natural and honest as the physical interaction

with material becomes an expression of the present.

 

Wabi-sabi represents a comprehensive Japanese world view or aesthetic centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection. The aesthetic is sometimes described as one of beauty that is "imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete".
