A ceramics artist 

“The beauty of food left to melt and ooze holds a fascination for me.
 It is something that is usually over looked and temporary 
but this can be captured and frozen in time with clay and glaze.
 I have focused on ice cream as
 it is such a momentary and yet memorable treat 
that most of us have experienced
 and therefore can evoke memories of sensations and tastes,
 as well as prompt a fantasy of desired indulgences. 
I am firstly inspired by the materials I use.
 I find that clay, porcelain and glaze 
have so many wonderful possibilities 
and often translate well to represent food.” 

"I love the idea that ice-cream only lasts for seconds but once its fired, 
ceramic is permanent unless you break it."

“With ice-cream,
 the best time is just before you eat it,
 but by the end of it
 you’re all ‘oh gosh, I don’t need the rest'. 
Consumerism is momentary, 
but also fun.”

“I find it fascinating how some people dislike my sculptures,
 usually because they don’t prize food in their own lives,” she says.
 "Children in particular tend to understand it more, which makes sense.”
