I have been working with clay for the past 25 years and never tire from the creative possibilities this medium offers me. My ceramic works have moved from primarily organic sometime vessel related hand built forms to, figurative and imaginative pieces.
Sometimes I set about to portray the human figure in a spiritual form. Very often I create variations on the same theme; my angels are still developing with each one I make. The hand building process allows me to think as I work and push the clay that little bit further.
Life drawing underpins my design ideas this have greatly influenced my current work in the form of angels and nomadic ladies. I impress all kinds of found materials into the clay such as antique lace, shells and woven textiles to emphasise surface texture. I see each piece as transitional, a bridge to the next stage of learning something new.
The possibilities and versatility that clay offers will be enough to fill a life time of creativity. www.jasceramicsandartworks.co.uk
