The artist has been described as occupying a unique situation, not only within the fairly narrow compass of the British craft world, but in British art taken as a whole.

She has been an important figure in British studio ceramics, producing thoughtful work, rich with ideas from the histories of ceramics, painting and music. Her innovative use of pattern and shape creates rhythms and suggests optical illusions. Blown Away Vase displays many of the elements of the artist's best work - a finely sculpted and decorated form, with strong visual impact and a complexity of references.
