With these clay works I have  more focused on character design than storytelling. I like using the clay because it has a cold look to it, the texture can be quite lumpy or smooth, I like the way that clay can be manipulated into any shape and scale and details that can be achieved really interest me.

These sculptures I’ve made are loosely based on the CREATURES OF THE IMAGINATION series. Some of the characters are quite clear and you can really see the resemblance and others I’ve just based them on some shapes or details that I find interesting.

I feature a lot of tentacles in my work, I like the shape of tentacles and how they look wet and slimy, the texture really interests me, and I like that they are slightly grotesque.
