Earlier work has been inspired by natural elements found within the coastal landscape; patterns, textures and weathered shells produced press molds and textures within the work. Enjoyment was had in finding contrasting areas of rough and smooth or a unified tension between differences.

The sea forms grew in size and had the ability to be wall mounted. Glazes and texture were created more instinctively over these surfaces and a sense of movement, through manipulating the clay, produced areas of rise and fall.

Observing the fluid movement of manta ray helped to establish a more refined and sculpted shape within the medium of porcelain. Ongoing work can incorporate the interconnectedness or independence of lines found within water currents.
