“These animal sculptures I make entirely by hand, combining shapes that I make by rolling and squeezing the clay, I use only simple hand tools and no mould of any sort.

 

Each piece is individually made and therefore every one is unique.

 

I aim for simplicity of form, accentuating certain characteristics and reducing or omitting others whilst trying to capture the essential features of the animal and hopefully a sense of the movement or ‘body language’.

 

They are all fired by a variation of the Japanese method of Raku”
