ABOUT ME

Pottery and gardening have been my passion since college days. I have been inspired by the things I grow and from exploring the local Sussex surroundings where I have dscovered a wealth of inspiration. I combine elements from landscapes and found objects and I use the creative process to simplify and transform the initial idea into something new.

My preferred method for creating sculptural pieces is hand building. I either use plaster moulds to support the initial forms as I build or I alter basic shapes which I have thrown on the wheel.

My tableware has been high fired to withstand the rigours of daily use. My glazes are often created by layering different textures and colours giving each fired batch its individual finish hence replication is not always reliable.
