“A knowing response to earth, a reconnection to self and a connection to others through creativity”.

In response to Fiona receiving the “Geoffrey Walker Fellowship” in 2019 awarded by the Suncoast Clayworkers, a body of work has arisen after travelling to the Penland School of Craft in North Carolina USA to study with the world-renowned Sculptor Arthur Gonzalez.

CULTIVATE is a body of work, expressive in nature, includes small and large figurative and portrait sculpture, large vessels and ceramic installations incorporating the use of natural found objects. The work embodies deep personal narrative around issues of life and death, loss, reconnection, rebirth and personal identity. There are also strong themes referencing earth and materials used in the ceramic process.
