‘Driven by a concept of confusing fact with the imaginary, my practice often focusses on creating fabricated existences inspired by the mundane. Through the mediums of print, ceramics and sound, I create replicas of everyday objects – revived using glazes and lustres, and screen-printed images inspired by seemingly conventional stories and local cultural references.’ Elise Bell
