“In the years I have been practising my craft as an artisan I have created many exciting projects. Using elements of fire, water and earth to create something beautiful has always been challenging and very rewarding. Introducing sound into this creative mix has been truly exciting and has taken me in to an experience I had not imagined. This body of work began as an attempt to make simple totem sculptures based around interesting organic shapes I had seen in a collection of didgeridoos. At the suggestion of a didge playing friend I decided to explore the possibility of creating sound from these totems.
Since 2008 I have been researching and learning to play Didgeridoo. This collection of ceramic totems plays exceptionally well, with a beautifully rich tone and high volume level and is my interpretation of the traditional timber instrument.”
