Glisk: gleam or glitter of sunlight. (Scots, Shetland)
From light and shadow to clay: abstract architectural forms that play with light, shadow and reflection; produced by hand with an experimental process incorporating traditional materials and techniques
Born in Glasgow, I studied Architecture then moved to Asia for 15 years, completing a PhD at the University of Hong Kong and took up ceramics while on maternity leave. Returning to Glasgow, I began to explore site-specific methods of working to reflect the spirit of the rediscovered places. Recently I have been focusing on model and plaster mould making; combining ceramics with digital modelling, cutting, printing and hand drawing and photography. During an MA at Bath School of Art I used a series of case studies to develop a framework and reflective process moving between site and studio.
