For me creativity is a culmination of lived experience, a continual gathering of emotional knowledge, invisibly distilled into my being. These responses sit behind and direct my creativity, continually demanding to be evaluated and reflected upon.
Working for Clare Craft pottery embedded a tacit knowledge of clay. Sculpting and hand building on a daily basis, clay became a familiar and reassuring comrade. I also met a very special and lifelong friend, Pip Whiteside whose words “Go on, you can do it” have stayed with me. Thank you Pip x
