Maker's statement

I worked on the idea for the 'circle bowl' at the beginning of 1990 and displayed as ' groups' from the middle of the year. Although the forms and texture are a progression from previous work, I feel that the concept of simple forms arranged as 'groups', 'complemnementary pieces' is the embryo of of a direction, would like to pursue with my one-off pieces. (Having moved my studio and chosen to no longer be open to the public, hope to be able to spend much more time developing this work uninterupted)
