Landscapes

Landscapes

The works  in this gallery are inspired by my  landscape investigations. Mostly they are the result of a response to the land and the enjoyment I derive from travel and walking. The appreciation of this experience is augmented by my scientific dabbling and the intrigue that earth science affords me as I try to geologically account for particularities of a landscape. I am also in wonder at the relationship that Australian Aboriginal people have with the country, their Dreamtime and the stories and paintings that represent that.

Ceramic Sculpture

Ceramic Sculpture

The sculpture I work with here have several different threads with the landscape themes offering endless possible formes tending to formal  presentations ffo landforms  that may assume a place in a garden. The influence of Oriental disciplines can be evident in some of this work, tHe Scholars’ Rocks   based on the Yellow Mountain influence very strong classical  influence inChinese Art.
I am also undertaking some quite whimsical forms which sporadically provide a tangnt to my endeavours. I am strongly challenged by placement of wotk ingardens.

Tableware

Tableware

The ceramics coming from my studio are fundamental production. The training in pottery I had at tertiary level provides me with the technological basis for my work. It enables me access to the theory of form and surface so important to what I do. Handmade table ware is a most luxurious addition to a lifestyle.
