I love nature and the outdoors; the lines and patterns within the landscape, the texture of grasses against a stormy grey sky, the variation in colour of a vast, open seascape. All of this inspires my work in clay. Here we have a hand made ceramic tile/painting mounted in a bespoke wooden frame. I use red terracotta clay and the image is built up using a combination of mono-printed coloured slips, impressed decoration and touches of different glazes. All of these layers and processes combine to create a unique richness and depth to the surface.
