I have made several alpacas. All sold and all different but based on the same shape. This piece is larger than its predecessors but like them it has undergone multiple firings to help create the finished patina.

Many of my ceramics start with a narrative that’s either imagined, half remembered, carefully researched or commissioned. I am always interested in taking on commissioned work especially of a commemorative nature.
A love of whimsy, folk art, religious and tribal art and my background as an illustrator, all go into the mix.
I work with a variety of clays into which I often add other fragments of additional material. These ”inclusions” plus the use of oxides and multiple firings add to the alchemy and give the clay a distressed or patinated surface.
