“My work deals with memory, traces and residues of the past. I have always been interested in collecting vintage objects that I incorporate in to my work. Objects with a history, a past life that I have recycled. My mosaics are made from china from various eras that has been chipped, broken and discarded. I have hand cut and reconstructed the fragments. I find the patterns on old china very beautiful and evocative. Flora and fauna to patterns from the 1960’s and 70’s are a constant source of inspiration.”
Whilst the Manor House Museum will remain closed to the public until funding is in place, the Alfred East Gallery and Cornerstone site will be reopening as soon as it is watertight later in 2023.
