I make one-off small porcelain sculptures inspired by microscopic study of plants. The great collection of microscopic slides, available at the herbarium at Manchester museum, provides me with a vast opportunity to look through the beautiful slides made by the botanists of late seventeenth century and early eighteenth century. Sometimes the compositions found in the microscopic study and my imagination’s interpretation bypasses what is found in nature. This blurred line between reality and created reality intrigues me. If only for a moment, one might lose themselves in the curiosity of the composition, perhaps creating a personal narrative with the piece. This process of creation and exploration forms a shared experience between us.
