01. BUD VASES
These bud vases evoke the organic growth of coral and fungi - the whole being made up of many individuals. The seemingly random configuration echos the way that flowers arrange themselves in nature, producing effortless displays. The effect I aim to achieve is to create a feeling of light-heartedness.
03. SEA SHELL VASES
The sea shell vases are about finding a delicate sea-shell on a rocky shore. It seems miraculous that shells can survive the journey through the pounding surf by submitting to the flow of the waves. The paradox of appearing fragile, but actually being strong, is an attribute I admire greatly.
05. SPLASH VASE
This splash vase is inspired by ultra slow motion photography of a drop of water. I have used the porcelain in a spontaneous way to evoke a feeling of chance movement, captured in a split second. The celadon glaze is strongly evocative of water, both in the way the glaze has melted, and in the way its colour reacts to different light intensities.
