CERAMIC

Vitrified porcelain can last for hundreds or even thousands of years. I am always mindful that changing a piece of earth into a durable product consumes precious and dwindling resources. Dwindling resources are also used in the production of clothing, and for some fabrics, animals give up their lives. These facts compel me to limit my work to making objects that are entirely useful and have great longevity.   Occasionally I leave my work zone and spend quiet time away from civilization. These are times of input. I absorb. While not directly transposing the forms and surfaces that I admire, I engage with a process of distillation and amplification of a variety of elements that eventually make their way into my designs.   Future proof embodies all of the principles that underpin my practice – notions of good design, functional art, quality and longevity.
