The latest work from my studio.
My latest now waiting to dry out before firing.

My reference was 'what is beauty'.....and after trying to talk to many people about the subject I decided to just think about the term from a woman's perspective.
I've explored public expectation of appearance from others, feminine aesthetics and connected handicrafts, practicality and usefulness, imagination and flight and loss.
It's been an interesting time for reflection...but a very big subject to explore.
