I am inspired by traditional gardening tools and processes. Sieves, watering can roses and seed packets gathered from my grandfather’s shed all possess a simple beauty, whilst unchanged activities such as sowing and cultivating offer a sense of longevity. Drawing is integral to my practice, and the forms of these garden tools are considered and abstracted, creating a catalogue of surface pattern designs. The simple forms of my thrown collection provide a canvas onto which I paint with slips, using a variety of techniques to build up layers of decoration.
