I throw stoneware or porcelain studio bowl, bottle and vase forms and also a small range of domestic ware. My work is starkly simple in form but complex in colour and texture. The thrown vessel provides many opportunities for me to explore the choice of glaze and/or surface texture which have to complement the vessel and provide a visually exciting or pleasing result.
In terms of inspiration, I look to modern British architecture, sculpture, modern studio pottery and fashion, especially that of Vivienne Westwood. I exhibit frequently and greatly profit from the exposure to other British makers and their exciting work. My aesthetic is grounded in British and European design and my technique is rooted in British pottery.
I sit as a council member on London Potters as editor of LP News and Vice Chair.
