Scratches on a 19th century pottery sherd | Suffolk. November 2019
I often take many pics too fast of my things and catch my hand in a shot as I’m switching out critters, but wanted to share this one.

Ceramic sea otter chopstick rest
Stirrup Spout Bottle - mountains, with musician and animals. 3rd–5th century. Moche. Peru. Met, NYC.
Former LSAD Graduate Clara Ryan has been a huge source of inspiration for my current studio work.
Her 2013 work ‘Medicated’ is a series of Slip cast earthenware which are colour stained pills and medicinal tablets. Each piece has an individual stamp of various high end brand logos.
The way in which Ryan portrayed the seriousness of consumerism as its unique form of addiction is mesmerising as these pills are so clean and pretty.
I was equally attracted to their display and symbolism and they have inspired me to take a look my own associations with medicinal drugs and use them in my art.

The Shapes of Leaves
Ginkgo, cottonwood, pin oak, sweet gum, tulip tree:
our emotions resemble leaves and alive
to their shapes we are nourished.
Have you felt the expanse and contours of grief
along the edges of a big Norway maple?
Have you winced at the orange flare
searing the curves of a curling dogwood?
I have seen from the air logged islands,
each with a network of branching gravel roads,
and felt a moment of pure anger, aspen gold.
I have seen sandhill cranes moving in an open field,
a single white whooping crane in the flock.
And I have traveled along the contours
of leaves that have no name. Here
where the air is wet and the light is cool,
I feel what others are thinking and do not speak,
I know pleasure in the veins of a sugar maple,
I am living at the edge of a new leaf.
