Artist's statement:
"We are blessed to be surrounded by a natural world that boasts so many beautiful features. Flowers are one of nature's more abundant gifts, beautiful, delicate and captivating, not only with their forms but also with their scent. We have taken these wonderful gifts from nature and entwined them with our cultures, ceremonies, feelings and desires. The flower enables us to say with a gesture more than we could convey with words.
To celebrate all the flower means to us, whether it reminds us of our first flashes of love, or the reassuring ongoing presence of love, or the loss of love, I have created a design that celebrates the flower in all its resplendent glory.
Each design is created around a crescent moon shape symbolising the dawn of a new day which brings with it new life and new possibilities. The stylised crescent shapes provides the structure for roses, orchids and honeysuckle flowers which have some of the most powerful meanings
The design "For My Love - Roses" was created to symbolise the captivating gravity of love at first sight, the all consuming feelings of first love
The design "For My Love - Orchid" symbolises timeless romance and desire
The design "For My Love - Honeysuckle" symbolises flames of love that will never be forgotten
On each design I have created a beautiful woman mesmerised by the seductive scent of the flourishing flowers conveying the all-consuming nature of love in all its stages
Each of these designs have been created on hand thrown earthenware chargers which are approximately 14" wide. Traditional tube-lining techniques were used and underglaze colours and oxides were then applied to bring each design to life. To enrich each piece further, a delicate application of lustre was used."
