My work has been mainly figurative for the past 20 years and though mostly ceramic (stoneware clay ), is now developing to include other materials.
Ethnography and Archaeology are recurring interests and the work probably has some base in these disciplines, though it is difficult to state categorically where it comes from.
I like to think of the pieces as being enigmatic, though apparently familiar, the characters are of no particular time or place. They might offer ephemeral clues to suggest various origins to the observer, but as in identifying ancient artefacts, they are open to individual interpretation.
