Her inspiration and process…
I find myself drawn to the intricacy of plants, examining the veins of a leaf,
how its edges are shaped, the layering of a flower’s petals. I look, I touch, I draw.’
For some works it can take up to a month
to create the mold, three weeks to attach the foliage,
and up to five months to let it dry!The artist uses an 18th century method she learnt
while interning at Wedgwood called ‘sprigging’
(in which tiny ceramic reliefs are applied to clay surfaces)
