I am driven to create because of the positive experience of using and enjoying beautiful ceramics in everyday life activities. No matter how simple the object, like a favourite mug, these are the things that turn a house into a home. They give us a strong sense of belonging and build on our identity. A home to me is an environment that lives in the present, has the excitement of the future ahead and treasures the past. It is the past that has been a focus of mine in recent years; looking at inherited objects finding their own place in the present home, creating feelings of nostalgia and allowing a reflection on memories , either in their original forms or re-created with a modern twist. This has then developed into finding objects from the past and introducing them as decorative as well as functional objects in my family’s everyday living experience.
