a celebration of the whole community of the school
The ceramic meadow at St Lawrence school was a celebration of the whole community of the school and its connection with the local area.
I wanted the community of the school to create a calm, peaceful space – different from the vibrant, busy classrooms and corridors of the school. I wanted to embrace being outside, and give the kids a sense of influence over this environment.

the moment we lose control
These pieces look at the moment we lose control and react in unexpected, unpredicted ways – shouting, screaming, laughing.
The work investigates the dynamics and energy of these experiences, expressing their movement, tension and force.
The thrown pieces are double skinned – the inside and outside wall are separate. When we lose control, and the skin is ripped open the unseen space (our inner world) is exposed.
