I find boats extremely compelling as formal objects, and they inspire the objects that I make as well as represent ideas such as travel, transformation, renewal and transcendence - all ideas that bring meaning to the act of art-making and inspire my work conceptually. The idea of transformation in particular has become a term that both materially (clay becomes rock) and ideologically (in nature, society or as individuals) is a thread that runs through my art practice.
