The human figure has always been part of my creative work. I have worked with different approaches to it on clay, whether drawn or more 3 dimensional.
Some pieces use simple visual linear narrative creating movement on an innately static material through drawing- The negative spaces being as significant as the positive of the body.
Or in the more undulating pieces, exploring an ancient human connection of the body with landscape/ landforms -frequently expressed through language historically- something evident in Welsh eg. gorff = landscape / body. In English- lip, brow, shoulder, breast, spine etc.
Introducing watery imagery to a piece allows for different ideas and figures to arrive in an image with a fluidity and freedom that gravity generally doesn’t allow.
