My landscape is abundant with forms for light to roll over and cast up into sight: ancient stone circles; sloping valleys with towering beech woods; surprising gullies and folds. And this light falls on the modern too: handcrafted stone walls; machine-made furrows.
Combining the traditional ceramic process - building up - with sculptural stone carving technique - paring away - I explore this relationship of light with form. How does it shift and shape it, rolling over edges, curves and impressions? How does it depend, soften or sharped what we see?
