“Objects can tell stories… here are some of mine…”

I create unique compositions with small objects in ceramic and mixed media. Either purely abstract, or forms suggesting unidentified utensils or obscure objects. These compositions often include ‘found’ and unusual materials. The pieces are arranged in museum-like displays and are created to trigger memories of the past, or hint at some mysterious origin.

All my objects are individual. These images show work I’ve made recently.
These exact pieces may not be available but are indicative of the work I produce.

    • Hi Sarah that sounds like a lovely idea. Yes I’d be more than happy for you to do that. I’d love to see images of their work when they’re done. How exciting. Elaine

    I love your work, please have a look at my website and see if you might like to arrange some kind of swap? You might hate my stuff – that’s ok! I would still like to buy a piece of yours though.
    Very best wishes, Jan

    • Hi Jan thank you so much. I’m so pleased to hear you like my work! I had a look at your website and your work looks fantastic. So creative and original, with such great use of mixed media. I’m afraid I don’t think I can do a swap at the moment unfortunately. But if you are still interested in buying something, please do let me know.
