introduction

My work is a combination of ceramics and wire which I use to create illustrative pieces involving bird forms in various situations. I particularly enjoy using wire because of its expressive qualities demonstrated both internally and externally in every piece. Each bird is unique with its own quirky and individual character. They convey different personalities and significances to each viewer often providing a comical and affectionate response. It is this response which motivates my work, and links well with my influence of communication. I find the form of a bird visually pleasing and it has significant meaning to me, as it has the intrinsic value of memory, particularly of my Grandma who would take care of injured birds. My future ambition is to continue developing as a designer by undertaking an MA and then perhaps go into the teaching profession or starting my own business.
