Symy is influenced by the patterns and forms that she sees in nature and attempt to evoke the feeling you get when confronted by nature in her pots. Clay is an ideal material for this, its composition that determines malleability and colour and texture is determined by its own natural formation. Symy thinks that this natural formation translates into the work you make out of it; when clay is fired it remembers previous iterations of itself twisting and warping back to what it was before you tried to make something of it, however if is irrevocably transformed by the firing into something permanent. She endeavours to capture a certain ephemerality in this permanence, a breath of life in something still.
