“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.” – Thomas Merton
Drawing and painting from a young age, having art as a school subject until Grade 12, I found the need to create and experiment with different art mediums five years ago.
I found something in pottery which I’ve never found in other mediums (speaking only for myself).
It teaches patience, it encourages to experiment and it drives you to perfect the process, but also that no pot or piece will ever be perfect. Personality trumps perfection anyways!
This suits my personality so well and shows in my work. I like change, I love colour, but I also like to tone it down and use black in my pieces. I LOVE pretty, unusual things in pottery. Something that is different from the rest. I tend to push myself to create such pieces.
I hope you enjoy my work as much as I enjoyed making it!
