'Since I was a child, the coast has always seemed somewhere 'just over the horizon'. I have always lived by, or not very far from the sea – the urge to smell the ocean and to touch the water has been a strong natural impulse, shared by many. Most of the ideas for the work in this exhibition are inspired by my own experience of the coast.' All works are hand built in porcelain or stoneware clays. The work is developed further with slips and oxides then finished with enamel colours.
