While on the MA Fine Art Contemporary Dialogues at UWTSD I began working with clay in a looser form – moving away from the constraints of the vessel, allowing chance to take a greater role in the process. Impressing the clay with various materials and the use of additions to the clay body that burn away leaving chance marks of trace, of absence, alludes to loss and the passage of time. 

These freeform pieces are impressed with strips of candlewick and are some of the last ceramic works I made on the MA - the start of a larger composite installation piece I intend returning to in the near future.
