Pottery is alchemy: the transformation, by fire, of earth and rock into something new.

Industry brings ease, efficiency, purity and reliability.

But the cost of this is the loss of the link between the potter and the Earth.

There is also and aesthetic cost.

Our raw materials are the ground beneath our feet. Each rock and clay has its own story to tell, and its own multifaceted character.

My aim is to illustrate this through their transformation into ceramics.
