Nostalgic impressions........

Thank you for looking at my shop.......

Nostalgic impressions……….

I have always been curious and fascinated about natural found objects such as plants, unusual flowers, shells, pebbles as well as natural environments.
I begin my creative journey by exploring in my local woodland and cycle path. I work seasonally and this is evident in the composition of my pieces. I love the stark bare skeletal effects of plants in the winter, then the much welcomed snowdrops at the start of spring. To the finale of the summer months where it is absolutely brimming with choice and blooms fighting for attention. Having the seasons makes me very excited for what’s to come and I see my work changing and developing differently each year.

The pieces I create are tactile and capture the life, structure and form of the plant at that particular point in its life span. Each piece I create is individual in its composition. The composition is the focal point of my work. I love the texture and warmth of the natural surface of the clay to be a feature in my work and glaze the inside of my pieces for functionality. I create the pieces using hand building techniques . The firing’s really enhance the body of the clay creating an overall rustic effect that doesn’t distract from the botanical compositions which are enhanced by oxides and pigments.

It’s important that we celebrate and promote the importance of wildflowers that are diminishing in our British countryside and cities. Wild flowers support pollinators such and butterflies and bees and support insect eating birds.

I realise that my interests and relationships with nature come from memories of nostalgia, childhood and my experiences of collecting objects. By exploring natural objects and environments this nurtures my hunger to fulfill my creative obsessions.
