This piece is part of my exploration of metal oxides in the firing process, particularly that of copper oxide. I wanted to express the characteristics and chemical transformations that happen to this material when fired to high temperature.
The cycles of growth and decay represented in the processes of Alchemy have been a big inspiration for me. Saturn is symbolic of decay and putrefaction, which according to the philosophy of Alchemy is a stage that is needed in order to allow for new life to occur. 
'Saturine Fire' is an alchemical phrase that is related to this process, I wanted to include in this piece a decaying surface texture and also create a glaze surface that related to the notion of fire and transformation.

I am an artist/maker working with ceramics and glass and based in London. I creates both sculptural and functional artworks that reflect my interest in materials and in expressing states of transformation and movement. I am fascinated by the spiritual, psychological and mythical relationship we have with different materials, and the transformative drama that these materials undergo in the firing process. In my sculptural work I am interested in alluding to strangeness and otherness through the expression of materials. My practice is research based and has drawn extensively on the philosophies of the early modern Alchemists, particularly the way they developed their own personal psychology and understanding of the universe through the technical mastery of physical materials. This blurring of the distinction between spirituality and science, and between psychological and material transformation, remains the locus of her practice and a fertile source of inspiration in my craftsmanship.
