Documentation of works: Up to this stage my development in ceramics has been somewhat fragmented and technically oriented. I intend to use the Masters Programme to bind together these ceramic experiences to produce a cohesive body of work. Using various techniques such as moulding, slip casting, throwing and handbuilding, I will be developing the work in two streams of thought and practice. One stream will concern itself with issues relating directly to my personal experiences, covering areas of human discrimination. As a starting point, issues such as racial prejudice and famine will be explored. Scale of the work will vary according to needs and questions of presentation and manner of statement, i.e. subtle or aggressive, are of concern at the moment. The second stream of work will concern itself with the traditional practices of form, decoration and scale using both high and low fired techniques. The two streams will not develop in isolation to each other and may cross at times. Both streams will continue to explore my interests in a number of techniques that are relevant to the ideas.
