Artwork Statement

'These pieces were among the last works I fired at my Terania Creek Studio.

While not a conscious reference, I have been convinced - by the many subsequent comments - that the rainforest which had so dominated our lives ... "up the creek" was the inspiration for these pots. The surface of the work was achieved by applying locally found clay slips and ash prior to firing in a wood fueled salt glaze kiln'. The artist 1999
