These pieces are something of a departure, visually, from what has been my line of exploration with ceramics. My work on this series has been driven by the gaps gradually noticed after something, someone or an emotion has become noticeably absent. Titled 'Holes' I have worked through my sketchbook and generated images that used structures - something I've always found reinforces the expected - to help imply or directly indicate the contrast caused by that which is felt, seen, known, to be absent.
