Most people live their lives having adopted an identity or persona.
As for me I seem to have an uncountable amount, be it the Guise of a mother or wife.
So between each identity I suppose lies my true self, a place where my work can be born.
“You are always lonely.”
My husband always tells me. It is not a great thing to be told. But I think he is right.
I am a busy wife and mother. I’m never alone because of the daily routine of family life. It is hard sometimes to be my creative self. One can easy get lost in the day to day of life, and struggle to find ones true self.
It is ceramics that catches the lonely me. I immerse myself in the process of transforming clay into ceramics. The dialogue with the material and process is very intuitive. I can focus on what I feel as I try to stay in the moment, a sense of being myself and being alive. Also through the language of my work (Ceramics) I feel I can connect with a wider audience.
