Artist’s statement

My works reflect colours and textures of Australian native flora, inspired by eucalypts and the rich textures and forms created through seasonal shedding of their bark. To recreate this, I used porcelain slip cast and manipulated form with underglaze and glaze. The blue gum (Eucalyptus saligna), grey gum (E punctata) and ghost gum (E papuana) influenced colour and construction.
