My work is mainly figurative, from full sized down to a couple of inches tall. At the smaller level I make solid figures with details modelled roughly, at the larger level the form is coiled first then modelled. I use tools as little as possible, preferring to use my hands. To heighten this effect, I do not use glazes, leaving the surface naked to show building marks and finger imprints. Although poise and character of a piece are more important than details, I still try to achieve a naturalistic result that people can respond to.
