A relatively late bloomer having taken up ceramics only in 2001, I hand-build large, hollow spheres from stoneware and fire them using a volcanic glaze. The surfaces are coloured and textured, some highly so, to create an impression of volcanic craters, lava flows and meteorite strikes. Since these ‘worlds' are impervious to the elements, they are displayed either indoors or outside, plinth-mounted or placed directly on the ground. When several are suspended from above they give an impression of a distant galaxy floating in space. They come in three sizes, large, medium and small. The large ones are about 50 cm in diameter and weigh around 10 kg. The small ones are 15 cm and 1.2 kg respectively and the medium ones somewhere in between.
