"Painting is just another way of keeping a diary."
― Pablo Picasso
Recently, the artwork I have been creating has been carrying on from finishing my Masters Degree in Ceramics.
I have always worked with transferring images onto the surfaces of the objects I hand-build. Using the surface of the clay like a blank page in a journal, I tell a story using photographs, lino prints and single descriptive words.
Through studying for my MA, this has developed from the literal to the supposed. Having started by printing images onto stoneware clay, I now draw on thin sheets of porcelain clay, cover the drawing with a resist and wash the surrounding porcelain clay off, leaving a seemingly blank surface which only reveals the drawing when the translucent surface is lit from behind.
