I’m often asked if I plan ahead what my pieces are going to look like. Invariably the images organically emerge while I’m carving, using a centuries-old method called sgraffito. Fanciful representations of nature are intrinsic in my work; you may see octopuses, flowers and insects scattered throughout. I love how the visual and tactile combination of this medium results in pieces that beckon to be touched. I enjoy the meditative process of working with clay and the camaraderie of the studio, and just wish there were more hours in the day to indulge.
