Clay, gravel and organics are collected from a location. These are worked into stoneware clay. Pieces are subjected to several firings in an electric or wood fired kiln. These multiple firings push the materials to their limits, achieving wonderful organic effects echoing the textural surfaces of turf, moss, lichen and geological formations. My love of Seamus Heaney's poetry, the landscapes of both irish bog and coastlines inspire and inform.
