New Work

I have just completed the final year of  my Masters in Fine Art in Ceramics at the National Art School in Darlinghurst, Sydney.

My work investigates the significance of consciousness-raising and the importance of story telling. I continue to experiment with the materiality of clay and the chemical interactions of glaze making.
