My work involves an exploration of elemental vessels where I try to distil an essence of place and evoke notions of quietude and transcendence through the expressive use of glaze and its relation to form, space and light.
The Willandra dry lakes region, in southern NSW, is a World Heritage site of profound significance for its record of geological evolution and human cultural record of the earliest Australians. At Lake Mungo, the land has been sculpted by climatic changes spanning 120,000 years. The vast basin, silent spaces and ephemeral effects of light, weather and time inspire my work.
