Art Works
 
Mirage vases arose from a drawing investigating form and pattern in light and dark. The vase explores the relationship between perspective and perception. By depicting a two dimensional image in three dimensional form, mirage vases appear to exist in a dimension of their very own. Being neither entirely two or three dimensional they seem to resist belonging to either.
 
Illusional Vessels focus on the pottery depicted in still-life paintings, drawings, photographs. In ‘Still-life’ pieces I have brought the vessel out from the 2dimensional plane and made it 3dimensional again; the illusion of depth applied to flattened form. It is a 3dimensional painting of a vessel.

Figurative Works. Many pottery terms are named after parts of the body, as in shoulder, neck, belly, foot. This led me to apply the illusion of human female form, with line and shade, to fit the ceramic vessel, in a series called ‘Vase becoming Nude’.
