About the Artist
“Passionate about clay and its magical properties of malleability, the body of work for my MA graduation show explores both processes of Nerikomi and Kintsugi for the creation of unique and decorative ceramic objects.


“Nerikomi (a process established in Japan and named from the traditional technique of creating patterns with coloured clay) is a new technique for me, but one, which embraces the properties of clay fully. Every  particle   is   worked  by  hand,  from  colouring  the  porcelain   with  stains,   to  forming patterns and creating designs. Patterns are embedded within the porcelain and become the   DNA   of   the   material   from   which   forms   can   be   manipulated.   A   dialogue   ensues between   maker   and   material.   A   design   can   be   imposed,   but   the   clay   will   distort   and twist, creating its own unique voice.


“Kintsugi (the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum) embraces the imperfections that can occur during the processes involved in the construction and firing. My fascination with both techniques is not only that the clay and pattern combine to become the material of the object, but also, the true character and materiality of the clay can be exploited and brought to centre stage.”
