At the beginning of 2023, I spent three transformative months in Arita Town, Kyushu, Japan, participating in the Arita Creative Residency, a program dedicated to learning and experiencing the art of porcelain, for which Arita is renowned globally.

The experience was extraordinary, involving learning from masters, experimenting, and immersing in the rich culture of Japan and the beauty of the countryside.

The wall pieces (Or standing) were created from porcelain, a delicate and often translucent material,to create an intimate form of light, reflection and contemplation. The ‘cave shape’ found in altars and carvings from around the world—including trees, fruit and animal motifs—offer each one of us an intimate space through its personable scale and representation of the sacred or the still.
