​My practice is centred on transforming and combining different materials, developing new processes to create intriguing sculptural forms and drawings. Currently my work focuses on wood and pewter. Although a lengthy process, sourcing green wood is a vital part of making, tracing its provenance and influencing how the wood reacts during its drying process. Then by carving, sanding and burning, I add strident contrasts to expose, highlight and celebrate its natural features and so-called imperfections. It is a delicate balance between my input and allowing the materials to find their own voice, to make their own mark.
