More than Skin-Deep

The biomorphic ceramic sculptures of More than Skin-Deep are the result of a slow and intuitive hand building process. Suggestive of living beings if not the human form, they were inspired during bushwalks, by hollows, curves and remarkable shapes in rocks and trees, which I irresistibly had to curl up in or climb onto. The marks and flashings on their surfaces demonstrate the path of the flames in a soda firing process to earthenware temperatures. The sculptures are metaphors of human emotions and social relations. They relate to issues of identity and belonging as I experienced them in cross-cultural circumstances.
