“Much of my work is created as a result of pure observation of the constant changes taking place in my own garden. I record the seasons from the tightly closed, almost hidden forms of early spring through to the dying withered forms of winter.
Diana seeks to reflect and not dominate the mood of the garden environment. As well as the rhythmic forms and patterns she finds in plant forms, Diana is influenced by the classical forms of Greco/Roman architecture, and creates a juxtaposition between natural and formal forms which also reflects her interest in “the warmth and movement of Art Nouveau”.
Diana’s work is made from stoneware clay fired to a high temperature, making them durable and frost-resistant. Her dry muted glazes are intended to enhance and enrich the garden environment.
