Turf Team: MOSS Assistant

Materials and process sit at the core of my creative practice. Using clay, fabric, weave and stitch in combination I create large abstract unfired sculptures. I focus heavily on material processes and often use the language of craft within a fine art context. The vast landscapes within Devon and Cornwall greatly inform the aesthetic language and materiality of the objects I make. I am interested in the life cycle of my objects and what it means to labour over an object with a shorter material permanence. Issues surrounding sustainability drive me to actively opt out of firing the objects, which also gives me the opportunity to add hand dyed fabrics and other materials directly into the wet clay body.
