The effects of the forces of nature on the landscape are clearly seen throughout Skye and a sense of this is important when I work with the clay. Letting go of rational control and working in partnership with the clay allows the natural development of textures which reflect the formation and erosion in the geology of the land.

My interest in the effects of human action – handling and using each piece – has helped me to find techniques that encourage the development of textures on the surface of a tight and formal vessel. There is a tension between the texture of the exterior and the expected functionality of the inside, held together by the outline of the rim that joins the two.
