As a ceramic artist, I am deeply passionate about creating functional sculptures that embody the beauty and strength of the female form. My work is a celebration of femininity, exploring the intricacies of the female body through the tactile medium of clay. My forms have a tendency to be voluptuous in nature and generously proportioned. My artistic perspective of the body is highly attuned to its curves and shapes. I want to normalise the features on a woman’s body that are often deemed less aesthetically pleasing by today's societal standards.
Working with clay allows me to connect with the primal nature of creation, shaping and moulding the earth into wares that evoke a sense of intimacy and connection. Each piece is a labor of love, a testament to the power and resilience of the female body.
The process of creating each sculpture is a highly therapeutic practice for me, a way to channel my emotions and experiences into tangible form. From the first touch to the final firing in the kiln, I pour my heart and soul into every piece.
I begin with a shape or particular body feature in mind and the clay often then informs the process of its own accord. My technique varies between hand building, slip casting and wheel throwing with stoneware clays.
My sculptures are not just objects to be admired, but tools to be used and experienced in everyday life. By creating functional sculptures, I aim to blur the lines between art and utility, inviting the viewer to interact with my work in a meaningful way.
I draw inspiration from all around me, from the beautiful landscape of the South West to the remarkable women in my life. I have a special interest in ancient ceramic artworks and the different eras of ceramics. This interest often leads me to discovering new shapes of traditional urns and vases that I may be able to incorporate into my works.
Through my art, I hope to challenge traditional notions of beauty and femininity, to celebrate the diversity and complexity of women’s bodies. I want my sculptures to spark conversations about identity, representation, and empowerment, inviting viewers to see themselves reflected in my work.
