My work is vessel oriented, consisting of vase, bowl and bottle forms. Thrown and often altered. I enjoy working with soft clay, working fast and not too preciously, allowing the clay to express itself, running my fingers through or denting the finished form.
Accidents in the making process and unexpected firing results, I feel, can all enrich the finished piece. I have always had a love for weathered surfaces and my volcanic glazes work well on my thrown forms giving them a soft, natural, eroded look.
Colours range from, off whites and stony greys with coppery greens, gritty earth reds and turquoise blues.
I studied at Camberwell College of Art and left with a BA Hons Degree in Ceramics and taught pottery at Putney School of Art, Wandsworth, Kingston and Richmond Adult Education Centres for over 10 years which included 5-day Raku courses in the summer.
