Annie.jpgAs a figurative ceramic sculptor I hand build using both coil and slab techniques and construct in a modular way. The vehicles I use to convey visual cues include the embodiment of human emotion in animals concentrating on the primary form followed by texture and palimpsest. I utilise the Hare as an everyman, and sometimes an alter ego, given that my maiden name Coney means rabbit. The formation of identity, particularly during childhood, continues to be my focus and the motivation in my making is to capture and encapsulate those small haemorrhages of the self, the dualities we encounter, which chart our emotional progress through life. I completed a Master of Design at Unitec in 2012.
