I love colour. The pantry idea gives me shelves of opportunity to play
with dazzling coloured glazes. I want the colours to be zany and
aggressively exuberant. Wild. Once I decide on the colour for the
pantry, I paint it. The shelves then become the field on which I can
play with colour. I begin by filling each shelf with finished jars.
Colours are set side by side in a random fashion.
shelves are filled I begin to remove one here and there, and either
leave a space or fill it with another colour. I am never really sure.
This process can go on for weeks until I achieve a balance of colour
and shape that settles over the whole.
of creation is in constant flux. Ideas are proposed, considered and
discarded until I arrive at a complete work. The new work is not the
end. It is only one of many searches for an image that represents a
feeling, an emotion, a passion for colour.
