I have recently left South Africa to live and work in Toronto, Canada
I have worked with clay since the early 90’s. And I love it – I don’t have to think or feel, its all about the sensation of the medium, about body, texture, pattern, space, time and form.
And I make vessels because containers are about potential – defined spaces of emptiness that can be filled with something…. Or nothing. Resonances of light, or sound, sight or touch.
From delicate, fragile porcelain lights or botanical carvings to heavy, strong black bells, the range and diversity is compelling, integrated throughout with symbols and patterns.
“The whole purpose of a vessel is that it be filled. But it is in the making of vessels, rather than filling them, that is life’s greatest challenge, and its’ most revolutionary achievement.” Chassidus
