My work investigates the creative and destructive forces of nature found in Cork’s coastal geology through ceramic vessels. I consider the erosive processes of wind and water and emulate these forces while making. I layer different coloured clays, marbling, tearing, compressing together, seam and strata, to echo the tortured seascape of my inspiration. Although the coastline appears rugged, an impervious bulwark against the Atlantic and the elements, it is vulnerable to human impact. This precariousness is expressed in the balancing of the vessels on a small base.
