It was never my intention to be an artist. In 1984 with a B.Com (Hons) in my pocket I embarked on a career of 22 years in financial management. My hobby throughout those years was always to make things out of clay. When the opportunity arose to spend more time with my family and live in the UK for 4 years, I seized the chance to study art part time at Open College Arts (UK). One thing lead to another and before I knew it I was a full time potter, keen to express my life in clay.
My ceramic vases, teapot combines and cylinders give me unusual forms with multiple surfaces on which to explore the existence of abstract things. Looking at the world in such a way helps me to make sense of the life we live and share with each other. It has also lead me to a deeper understanding of the one God and Father who unite believers in Christ (who is one with the Father) by the Spirit to him. The logic of Christian doctrine is a beautiful treasure that I unpack and explore on my pots as I search for the shape of created things – be that color, heaven, the poor, the fields on earth, the modern and postmodern etc.
