‘Inspired by the mussel beds I discovered with my friends while we were exploring Boscombe’s artificial reef. There you can find starfish feasting on mussels as the tide rises and falls, washing through gardens of seaweeds which have established to form a growing habitat.

This piece is hand built stoneware.’
