Over the last five to ten years I have focused a lot on paper craft and book sculpture. I have enjoyed this time and have created work that has travelled across the seas to America, Belgium and France and by land around the UK. I have however realized I want to move onto a material that is less fragile, maybe because I have recently started to feel less fragile myself….
I have recently started working in ceramics again which has its own fragility but, compared with paper it has a lot more strength. Maybe I will work in metal or stone one day when I am ready.
My work right now is very personal, I am creating pieces of ceramic from book sculpture. The process I use means that the original book sculpture is burnt away in the kiln leaving imprints of my former passion. This creates a whole new sculpture. The new piece is interesting but still holds resemblance to familiar shapes like fossils, reminding us of the past.
I am moving forward but using fragile book sculpture as a strong foundation. In My new work I feel my mind is refreshed. I am still working with books but I feel the new work is bringing me forward and out of a safe place where I have sheltered while recharging.
In my new work I aim to push past what is comfortable and enjoy the exploration of a new material. As ever in my work I want to understand absorb, accept, appreciate, believe, catch, comprehend, conceive, digest, fathom, get, get the picture, grasp, have, imagine, know, perceive, realize, recognize, sense, think.
