"My current preoccupation is with the process of changing.

 My involvement with clay over the last fifty years has been continually self-referential. My work continues to evolve seemingly imperceptibly. The changes I experience in my practice in my studio may seem subtle and minimal but to me they are personally monumental in scale.

 It is all about me creating a set of distinct rules and juggling a limited number of variables into endless permutations. I really get off on this.

My current exhibition plays with the duality of soft/hard, loose/defined where the randomness of the craters of volcanic explosions contrasts with the formality of the placement of mathematically measured drill holes.

 I have also been playing with anti-gravity, attempting to overcome the fluxing nature of clay to not want to keep in a horizontal plane."
