Ceramics 2019

This work is informed by the plight of refugees throughout history as well as a response to the natural environment, a personal awareness of the sea and it’s power to shift and change, to transmute objects in its wake. The fragile, transient nature of the little boat wrecks emphasise human vulnerability. The golden charms or amulets are mementos, wishes and desires. The rich combination of materials, petals and flints, birds and body parts, anchors and houses all remind us that life is a fragile and precious thing.
