The large ink and water on paper were drawings made for Experiential Spaces: Pause in 2009 – 2011 by working on larger paper enabled me to begin to understand how my body was moving during the process of mark making. This later became a key element during the making process when carving clay on a human scale the very nature of making becomes so tied in with the physical.

The movement within my upper body and arms along with particular tools came about from this early exploration and experimentation through these large ink drawings.
