Artist's Statement

As a maker of things, as well as a social scientist, I am chiefly concerned with challenging the established. My work is interdisciplinary, both penetrating and alienating many different spheres. I have worked mostly in ceramics, but I utilise many different techniques and strategies to create my work. I force the viewer and myself to challenge their accepted categories of art and the philosophies that underlie these categories. It is not only the concept behind the piece, but also the process of making, that is paramount to my practice. The work is a record of both my internal and external environment at the time of making.
