A Potter's story

After a long career in performing arts and higher education, I joined a local community pottery a few years ago to balance the challenges of my work life and learn a new skill. This took me on a beautiful journey to becoming a full time potter.

 

As a performer and educator, I thoroughly enjoyed the practice of sharing through the telling of story.  In clay this new sense of story through handmade pottery has truly fed my soul, and informed my work in many ways. The interactions and colour of the glaze become the language, and the textures within the clay enrich the background and place within each piece. The very fact that these are every day items we can all use and enjoy, ensure that this becomes a shared experience and instills a conversation between maker and user. This  story cycle enriches my creative experience continually.

 

In my work, I am drawn to the discovery of making new forms and glazes, and finding special effects through research and exploration. I am continually building my skills and sharing these experiences with others through my social media pages. Inclusivity and acceptance are a part of my core values, and as such, my work connects through complimentary pieces, rather then uniformity of products. I am constantly building and extending my collection.

 

I have therefore designed this website as a space you can return to, and find new evolving forms, and works that will blend and integrate with the range of pieces you acquire.

It is always such a joy, to pass my work, from my hands… to yours.

I acknowledge and respect the continuing culture and traditions of the Wardandi people; the traditional custodians of the land upon which my studios stand. I recognise their connection to the land and waters of this beautiful place, and affirm that I work on their unceded land. I pay my respect to all Wardandi Elders, leaders and Ancestors, and any First Nations people who are visiting this website and viewing the work I make on Wardandi boodja.
