I create ceramic vessels as activators for well-being. I do this by exploring how universal life force energy can be transferred from nature into clay and then I respond to that alliance by making functional pieces for dwelling spaces and as tools for contemplation and meditation.
As a Reiki Master Teacher, I’m motivated by how the healing quality of ‘outside’ nature, can be brought ‘inside’ and how markings taken from nature can form a visual bridge to create increased resonance.
This offers the onlooker or user to connect to nature, any time, any place – even for a moment in between the busy pace of modern day life.
I use a combination of commercial, wild clays and porcelain in my making practise, throwing and hand building in sculptural layers while engaging healing resonance.
