The artist works in base and precious metals, using the form of vessels as a canvas through which to explore how people negotiate their physical and emotional place within the world. Focussing particularly on line and form, her vessels – vases, dishes and bowls – explore notions of function and emerge from the context of the domestic, the rituals that characterise it and our interactions with it.
Her work involves relationships: within the piece through gestures and the relationship of form, between the piece and the viewer or between the pieces themselves. The work sometimes takes the form of individual pieces, sometimes as pairs and often as groups that can be arranged and rearranged to explore these different relationships.
Beginning with a flat sheet of metal, she uses a range of techniques including raising and fabrication to hand-make the pieces. Although all are unique, or are unique pieces from within a series, similar pieces can be repeated in various metal finishes.
