My submission to Clifton Arts Club Summer Exhibition this year is called ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Rancour or Bitterness, felt by most at some point in their lives, is a rather uncomfortable feeling, and the World Wide Web is full of how to overcome this negative feeling, so I will leave this aside and tell you more about my work, shall I?

When I have a lump of clay in front of me, I often have no idea of what I'm gong to make, I don't do any drawings: instead, I let the clay take the shape it wants to be in. This, I think, enables my sub-conscience ooze into the medium.

I like incorporating found objects in my work, and I have a box full of these "gems"... lengths of wire, an antique key, or old, car spark plugs! Don't laugh, please!

In this work I used brown, craft crank stoneware clay. A mould that I made used to shape the face. A wire connects the upper and lower parts of the face.

I think my work speaks for itself... what does it tell you?

It can be viewed from 4th-19th August 2018 at Victoria Methodist Church, 1 Whiteladies Road Bristol, BS8 1NU.
