“My intention is to ‘seek the sacred in the ordinary’. I endeavour to make contemplative objects which have a utilitarian dimension. My aesthetic inspiration is drawn from the patterns, colours, light and textures in the urban and natural African landscape.
Applying techniques of press moulding, casting and throwing I
use earthenware clays, slips and underglazes.”
