My current work is inspired by Henry Moores concept of being true to the material where image and material sit comfortably. This also lends itself to the idea of the naked clay body, exposing the clay for what it is on it’s own, with out glaze, cover up, distraction or shame. As a potter I have explored the way porcelain bodies actually behave instead of forcing them into shapes based on there reputation, raising the question are they dysfunctional table are or functional sculpture.
