"The movement of the glazes and the irregular line that moves around the vessels where the glazes overlap evokes the shifting lines of sand that occur when tides come in and out. I have spent many hours walking along the beaches on the Surf Coast of Victoria. These experiences get expressed in the work I make." - Bridget Foley, 2017.
