My inspiration comes from nature and from the characteristics of the metals I work with. What interests me is the transformation of materials and objects and their perceived value. I collect and draw natural and eroded forms; often these are 'vessels': sea-worn shells, nutshells, eggshells and bark. I am inspired by their sculpted shapes, rich textures and colour, their fragility, their cracked and split edges. I have become increasingly interested in the contrasts between these natural containers and man-made containers. A drinks can, for example, is such a common object, used and discarded, of little beauty or value. A fragment of shell found while walking on a beach can become a treasure, although like the drinks can it did its job and was discarded.
