Awakened from a dream in 2008 about rocking boats I knew I was ready to start on a new ceramic adventure, a new chapter in my life and the start of something romantic and soothing.
With the simplicity and innocence of paper boats in my mind I started to explore the possibilities of motion and materials. I have used paper clay to keep both the theme of paper and the lightness of a boat on the water, whilst producing a simple shape to softly rock and imitate the rhythmic movement of waves and water.
The boat is symbolic of the journey through life and the boat is the vessel that enables this journey. Every piece is unique and over the years they have evolved to reflect moments in my journey as my personal pilgrimage continues.
