I've been developing a range of matt "dry" glazes. Coupled with previous work on textured surfaces the opportunities for development are exciting. My Stoneware, Porcelain and Raku work continues with occasional Terracotta slipware. Curiosity is the driver and being ever open to surprises.

Meditation on the Australian Wild Fires, bobbin lace techniques using gilt coloured copper wire, 30cm x 40cm
I created this piece to pay tribute to the stoicism and resilience of the Australian people in their fight against the wildfires. I’ve been moved and touched by the resilience of the Australian people, horrified by the plight of the wildlife and unnerved by the pace of climate change. As a symbol of respect for the Australian people and the devastating fire season of 2020, I have created some flowers of Australia, a waratah; the state flower of New South Wales, a golden wattle; Australia’s National flower and a royal bluebell; the flower of the Capital Territory, surrounded by golden flames.

Fantastical Flower, bobbin lace techniques using gilt coloured copper wire, 10cm diameter
I combine the traditional skills of bobbin lace making with wire to make distinctive and unique jewellery and lace art. I am inspired by the patterns of nature, the transient and ever changing natural world and the rich heritage of lace. I am developing larger pieces of sculptural work including a 3D Elizabethan collar made in wire and featuring flowers, moths and bugs.
Working in a more conceptual way using a range of media, I continue to take inspiration from the environment alongside the psyche and the practie of using art to promote positive thinking. Reusing and re purposing objects that I can turn into something of beauty and meaning is a continuing theme in my work. I also produce illustrative art work for children's rooms.

I continue to be captivated by the beauty of nature and have been using new techniques to make plants and flowers to adorn my hats and headpieces. I also love Japanese art and design and am producing a collection inspired by all things Japanese. I greatly enjoy teaching millinery in workshops and private lessons.
