Symbols allow people to go beyond what is known or seen by creating links between concepts and experiences - An alternative way of communication.
Drawing on the influence of symbols having a meaning, telling their own story I wanted to create pieces that are drawn from my story. Much of my work is inspired by nature, so this time I have been looking back over my travels and noticing my influences, patterns, sounds and styles that have stayed with me over the years. I’ve been careful not to appropriate any existing symbols, but creating my own, each representing a memory for me. I hope people can take meaning from each mark and put their own meaning or memory to it.
I hand drew and designed the patterns then put the design onto Bone China Mugs in my studio in Bristol.
Made from bone china the mugs have a fine rim and that almost translucent quality, that you can only get with Bone China... It's true what they say, Tea really does taste better in Bone China!
