Artist Statement:
This piece was turned during a trip to Northern Ireland. Although in my characteristic style, it is much smaller and more finely detailed than any other piece in this Collection and the wispy edges of the design became a feature after witnessing a misty morning sunrise from the seashore in Larne.

About the Artist:
"The thrill and sometimes frustration of working with a living material that moves and twists as I work cannot easily be conveyed in words but the shapes and textures that can be created are endless and the drive to be unique and push boundaries is exciting. These inherent challenges keep me moving forward to see how far I can develop the medium and what visual impact I can produce in each piece, whilst being sympathetic to the material itself.
As an emerging designer/maker in wood, I work with ethically sourced native English timbers, creating decorative vessels and sculptural forms with distinctive textures, pyrography and carving. I create movement across the surface with multiple layers of fine texture. Simple marks blended to form complex surfaces. Humans are naturally curious, the need to turn the piece, follow the curves, explore the tactile surface, question the nature of the material, engage the audience."
