Gwynn Tir (White Land) is a critical view of social, political and cultural issues arising from the destruction of the Cornish farming and mining communities. I have been exploring the fragile existence of the landscape and these fading industries; the thrown cylinder becomes metaphor for the abundant chimneys that remind us of a past unique to Cornwall.

The china clay industry and the geology of the Cornish landscape is the backdrop for this investigation of tension between function and fragility.

Whilst each pot is given its own detail and character, grouped together, their individuality becomes essentially apparent. The use of Porcelain in contrast with smooth black stoneware and oxides symbolize the veins and strata of the granite outcrops.
