New Ceramics for 2012

In the last few months of 2011 I reintroduced my old printmaking techniques onto clay.
Clay has a memory and every mark is never lost. The metaphorical potency of clay can be powerfully suggestive, it is my perfect medium.
Recently I have been developing ceramic pigments and hand coloured porcelain engobes. Building up layer upon layer and constantly reworking the surface over periods of time thus creating a history of events.
2012 will begin with a new series of sculptures and wall pieces involving these new techniques..........
