Colour is a beautiful thing. It is something that can have many meanings and evoke a wide range of emotions. Using clay to create a piece, I try to keep the form simple, functional and make sure not to distract from the surface so it can be the focus of the piece. An item one might interact with often or even daily. By crafting glazes with complex ingredients, I offer people many different textures and surfaces allowing them to make their own personal connection with the work. During my colour theories program I discovered the impact colour can have on different people. From the car we buy to the coffee cup we choose in the morning, colour affects us more than we know. My pieces focus in glaze technology to express the relation between colour and its impact on our world.
