A CERAMIC EXPRESSION

 

Artist Profile

I am a Ceramicist reaching the conclusion of my Masters in Ceramics with Cardiff Metropolitan, CSAD.  Relatively new to the medium, I have developed a deep passion for clay. This passion has led to another fledging practice, a fusion of ceramics and poetry: Poamics. My practice researches the vocabulary and narratives contained in both shard and verse, its aim, to enrich present conversation in Ceramic materiality.

 
 
 
 

First Poemic construction

9 of february 2019

Exploration of joining elements, creating formal structures, capturing movement from the wheel to the reduction firing. Celebrated in glazing, that flows from top to bottom and from inside to out.

Ceramics as words and vowels

December 2018

Using 12 off the shelf Chinese glazes with a selection of glaze recipes, I set into the process, rigorous testing on a variety of materials. Thes forms and there's glaze appear in a dialogue of words indicative to children as they the acquire language.
