‘Earthly Gifts’.

This work was shown in the exhibition ‘Elemental’ at the Heering Island Summer Arts Festival 2011 and was awarded the winning prize.

Artist statement:
‘Working with clay is working with earth, the material itself make up the connection to the environment which surround us. Ceramists give shape to the clay and use various materials from the earth for their creative endeavours.
My piece ‘Earthly Gifts’ suggest that nature’s materials are gifts which should be appreciated and used wisely. Likewise we must consider how all our actions shape and change the world we live in.’
