“I use clay as a medium to carry poetry so that it can be a constant visual presence in our lives.”
Tiles can be used for walls, floors, parts of furniture, ‘read-as-you-go’ footpaths an fountains – “a thing of beauty” either indoors or out in the garden.
Each tiles is unique, made individually by hand and decorated with words. Most of the tiles are inlaid, a process in which I carve the pattern in the clay while it is still wet. This technique has been used since Roman times to make patterned floor tiles.
