Currently my work is exploring the development of the thrown form as representative of the family. I am using the form to represent not only male and female but also other persons that cannot be so easily be categorised. This development has culminated in the Metrosexual Family previously shown at St David's Hall, Cardiff.
A further development of this theme is a body of work titled 'The Victorian/Edwardian family.' This is again based on the thrown form representative of male and female, but looks to examine the family loss suffered by both infant mortality at the time and the carnage suffered in the Great War.
