Artist Statement

Drawing inspiration from the majestic, rugged coastline around the Isle of Harris.

I have formulated a palette of glazes which are applied by pouring, brushing and sponging giving each piece individuality. The volcanic areas are then ground down to reveal the bubbling, dry texture beneath, these eroded areas contrast with the watery, fluid glazes as the sea foaming on the rocks.

Individually sculpted barnacles are applied to some pieces, as well as the reference to the sea, these barnacles also represent time passing, memories and loss.
