Red Steps Studio
I hand-build with coils of clay and love the fact that this tactile material responds directly to my hands.
Satisfactory forms begin with my thoughts and feelings but, given the opportunity, the clay will also follow its natural inclination and influence the outcome, providing a degree of unexpected interest and spontaneity.
Ceramics, Mixed media
I work with poetry in ceramics, and explore how we recollect experiences, thoughts and feelings associated with the landscapes of our lives. Clay-scripted wall plaques and hand-held textured forms employ texts which can, in just a few words, convey us to another time and place
Moya throws with porcelain and plays with ideas of tension by cutting and piercing her vessels and 'stitching' them with leather to create a new tension. To counterbalance porcelain's whiteness Moya uses intense blocks of glaze colour, enriched with strips and drips of lustre and gold, platinum and silver leaf. This creates an equilibrium where all elements both highlight and complement each other.
