Working with clay allows and offers a sensory, physically challenging and kinaesthetic experience. It is a material that records action, touch and emotions as it is manipulated into its final form. From paper to clay, my actions always stay the same: pressing, imprinting, and rolling into the material, or into the page.
My practice involves working with different materials and processes, across 2D and 3D, to explore a bodily interaction with form, weight, and space. Transferring the forms is a shift between each stage of these representations, raising the question of how these details and attributes change as I move them from one dimensional plane to another. Merging materials together, using the same grog I add to clay to texturise the surface of a print, building a relationship between the 2D and 3D - a direct material connection.
