In the 1970's I came from New Zealand, where a strong and active movement of studio pottery dominated the crafts. Having dabbled in ceramics before leaving, with the intention of studying the harpsichord and organ at Trinity College of Music London, the desire to return to working with clay was still very strong. Having graduated from Goldsmiths College, my work in ceramics has very strong parallels with my work as a professional musician.

While at Trinity College I was drawn to the music of the Baroque period.
With baroque music, the form is usually very simple: a theme, containing just a few notes, is embellished or decorated to enhance the simplicity or to sustain the melodic line. Often the composer determined the structure in terms of chords, and it was up to the performer to extemporise his ideas, emotions and feelings with embellishments.
I have used porcelain clay to express these musical feelings. A simple bowl form is made and is then altered to create an impression of movement.
