Enamelled Vessels 1
Enamelled Vessels 2
I am inspired by natural landscapes, coastlines and what can be discovered within them. I capture the movement of water through expressive drawing with ink and using a selective colour palette of blue, white, grey and black. I translate this on to enamelled copper vessel forms.
I relish the duality of perfection and imperfection that occur within natural forms. Wasp nests, bee hives and unusual fungi are my inspiration for the hand pierced elements that encase and grow over my enamelled vessels, emulating how nature reclaims objects. There is nothing more thought-provoking than something that is perfectly imperfect.
