Through social engagement and sculpture I explore relationships between people and objects. Specifically, the development of emotional attachment to objects and its impact on our lives.
I interrogate the role of an object, often working directly from possessions. I work primarily with clay for its material qualities, historical relationship with humans and the process of creation/destruction of objects that firing provides.
My work reflects the psychological space in which an object sits and how this impacts our emotional development, how our values determine our selection of personal objects and how we develop emotional attachment to functional objects through time and usage.
