“It started off with ballet. I think it’s interesting that the connection between ballet and ceramics is the closest out of all the media I’ve worked in. Because of that iterative practice, going back to the ballet barre and going through those “one, two, three, four, five” positions – and that constant rigour, with slight increments of improvement in order to create whatever it is that your body’s going to do. It’s thrilling when you find that perfect balance in a pirouette, it’s a very similar sensation to when you are centering clay on a wheel; you have to let go… to do something we’re not really supposed to do, to find the perfect balance.”
