Statement

The pots that I make are to be used and enjoyed in domestic life.  I keep decorative techniques to a minimum preferring instead to use the shape and form to determine the clean and simple look of the finished pot.

Biography

 

I began throwing 19 years ago when living in Sydney Australia - I joined a day class and was hooked!  I work predominantly in porcelain but also use stoneware for the mixing bowls and large platters. I make the bowls, jugs, mugs and small platters out of porcelain and then glaze with a blue celadon and creamy white.  I use clay body stains to create the spiral designs in some of the bowls seen on this website.

I studied ceramics for 12 years at Stroud Art College and recently completed a short course with Jack Doherty at the Leach Gallery in St Ives, Cornwall.

I also teach ceramics working as a variable hours lecturer for Stroud College.  This takes me out into the local community working with vulnerable adults particularly those participating in the Nelson Trust rehabilitation programme.

I live and work in the Cotswolds where I have been able to transform an old stone outbuilding into my studio - I have been working here for the last 5 years exhibiting at local galleries and taking part in artistic festivals in Stroud and Cirencester.
