I am exploring human form through sculpture with a focus on capturing movement using various malleable and tactile materials. I create figures of different sizes using mixed materials with a strong preference for a clay element to be involved in the process. My work looks at the human form stripped back, usually depicted by strips of mesh dipped in hand mixed clay slip, wrapped and draped around carefully moulded wire frames. This method creates delicate vessel like figures in a variety of poses and positions expressing varying degrees of movement, strain and mobility. I draw from my own experiences living in a disabled body and my journeys through variable mobility.
