The inspiration for my work derives from the Chinese concept of Yin Yang, the philosophy of which sees two opposing energies within the universe. One energy cannot exist without the other.
To express this I use the simplicity of wheel thrown cylindrical forms with my main focus on an installation of multiples. The composition of the multiples is of paramount importance in the concept behind the work and I have incorporated the Golden Ratio to give a fixed proportion to the work regardless of the individual scale of each piece. I use two different clay bodies with very opposing characteristics to communicate my work; black brick for 'Yin' and porcelain for 'Yang'.
