Moyra Stewart explores the ways in which human beings embrace the external influences in their lives. Using elements of the natural world as a metaphor for our growth and change, she reconciles the collision between our interior world and its external context through her responses to the way landscape is shaped by nature.
“Nature does not conform to regular shapes or straight lines, its physical form is always affected by the forces in its environment.”
The process of Naked Raku is temperamental like nature; control and skill alone will not guarantee a successful result. With patience, diligence and attention, some work will make it through the fire unscathed and transformed into objects that seem almost to have sprung effortlessly into life.
Moyra lives and works in Northeast Fife and exhibits in Scotland and the UK.
