As well as using traditional methods, I love to experiment with new techniques and materials. The materials I choose to work with are predominantly porcelain and metals, the alchemical processes required for both being the key to my affinity with them. There is always that random element beyond my control that determines the end result; rather like life itself.
I have been naturally drawn to ancient, excavated beads along with Old Trade beads, their having travelled journeys covering several continents, many of them Treasured and Sacred. These old beads are finite in their supply as are the earths resources.
