This collection is about Winter – a time to be still – and water, in all its myriad forms. With each range of pieces, I am considering how solid or fragile they become, how smooth or rough, what marks or pattern to reveal, the depth of blue black colour. The nuances of all these change a little, even from shape to shape, making each one a small discovery. When I take them through their final processes, of sanding the chalk surfaces, batik waxing or polishing, they feel to me like found pieces of pottery eroded by the sea, or shells washed up at the shoreline. I thread them together, joining them with fishing knots, allowing their raw simplicity to prevail.
