Hornsby TAFE (1995-2008)

In 1993 I started working full-time and thought I had to give up on being creative. How wrong I was. It did not take long to realise that decision was a huge mistake. Art is the only way I make sense of the world, and without it nothing makes sense.


So I backpedalled my way into a Fine Arts course at Hornsby TAFE in 1994 but it wasn't until 1995, when I revisited ceramics, that I realised I had come home to myself. Over the course of the many years that followed I devoured the short courses that Hornsby TAFE Ceramics Department offered - handbuilding, surface decoration, wheel throwing, mould making, glaze technology, kiln technology; and dipped my toe in the water of multiple other ceramics processes.

I loved it. I moved onto longer courses - Certificates, Diplomas, Advanced Diplomas. This gallery is a selection of work created throughout this long period of time when I had the luxury of time and the gift of focus and productivity. It was a journey that led me down uncharted paths and deep within myself. Processes anchored me. They still do.
