My youngest son Benny’s birthday was coming up. One of his favourite animals is the penguin. I made a one off piece especially for him. It is called The Benguin.

I learnt ceramics at The New City Academy, Hackney. The course set me on a road towards making sculptures when I won the Ceramic Award at The V&A Inspired by… Exhibition with my first piece.

Lockdown Self-isolation Self-portrait
My ‘Lockdown Self-portrait’ is how I felt throughout lockdown. I am confined inside, hands placed against the pane. An unheard scream in claustrophobic captivity.

What is being said about Lockdown sculpture…

“ wandered through your site…enjoyed it. The sculpture captured in a glass was both creative and frightening.”
“It was a weird feeling seeing the look of desperation of the women’s face . Trapped in a glass cage. Reminded me of the desperation of the inner person trying to get out of the traps this life dishes out. Remarkable!!”
