PRECIOUS OBJECTS

I am fascinated by the idea of creating small, aesthetically pleasing objects with no obvious function. Ambiguous and tantalising, they pose more questions than they answer. They are pure form and colour. Unlike larger sculptures, they are also an appeal to the haptic - they have weight and texture and are of a size that relates to hands and fingers. In most art galleries, touch is the one forbidden sense, yet it is one of the first and most primal ways in which we gain an understanding of the world of things.
