I have been preoccupied with surface decoration on functional pottery forms. There has been a steady evolution in my work, an increasingly refined intensity in surface decoration on porcelain based on a love of pattern and the ways in which repetitive motifs can be used to enhance a simple form. When decorating a piece of pottery with an intense overalls pattern, nothing is rushed. The design is built up incrementally using fine Japanese brushes and wax resist. This slow, cumulative, organic method induces a meditative approach that requires slowing down and appreciating the material, the process and the pleasure of working with one’s hands.
