Ceramics balance the weave construction planning with actual physical making.
In ceramics I shape through manipulation with my hands – direct. Whereas in weaving I shape through construction, abstraction of movement, theory of interlacement. The texture of material is entirely different.
Ceramics are material based just like textiles. And hugely concerned with surface , which allows for connecting the two, applying sensitivity and observations from one to the other. This is the starting point for all of my projects in ceramics.
I work from within the ceramic process with a textile lens.
