The power and strength of nature and the sea is a theme that runs through the whole of my work. I adore the beauty, strength and expanse of the sea. It is a constantly changing natural force. I am often trying to recreate some of that energy and beauty in my porcelain lighting. The theme of the sea is a near constant in the story of Robinson Crusoe. It is a vehicle for his wanderlust adventurism, it imprisons him on his island, it brings him human companionship, sanity and human contact in the form of Man Friday and it allows his escape some 28 years later. At Pelham's our main focus will be the theme of the sea, but there are many surprising links between our 2019 world and the world of 300 year old Robinson Crusoe including loneliness, slavery and inequality. We are very much enjoying rediscovering this book and Robinson Crusoe's world.
