“Still life inspires me to make forms reminiscent of my
childhood, visits to my grandmother in Central West NSW.
Old wares out in the back shed, used in the garden or in the
outdoor laundry which housed the working copper and
cement sinks. Looking to create a visual experience from
familiar & traditional enamel ware shapes, deconstructed
and reinvented into vessels & decorative ceramic forms.
I replicate the surfaces to tell the story of tin ware patina
perfected over many years of use. This unwanted treasure,
junk to some, although for me, the reliability of quiet
strength in these everyday objects conveys trust. Still life
brings a rich visualisation, evoking early memories, gently
tugging you back to a time or place”
