Statement

I love the natural world and am also most inspired by the decorative arts of ancient cultures such as the Egyptians and the Etruscans. I greatly admire the way in which they adored, respected and worshipped nature, a real contrast with our modern, greedy and consumerist “money-venerating” culture. The aspect of preciousness and timelessness which these ancient works of art embody is fascinating, as is the way in which they seem even today to possess a universal aesthetic, appealing to and inspiring the contemporary over and over again. I don’t know if it is realistic but I would like to be able to capture a similar element of timelessness in my work and hope that it may be preserved in time along with the works of other makers that share the same convictions in high quality craftsmanship, aesthetic distinctiveness and originality and be appreciated and nurtured in the context of public and private collections for many generations to come.
