Welcome to my website
Here I am in my studio throwing a small mug. Each piece is unique, handmade on a potter’s wheel, painted and glazed with considerable care and fired to 1,260C. The high temperature makes them strong, oven and dishwasher safe.
These pots celebrate the serving and sharing of food. Their decoration reflects my relationship with the natural world, especially the leaves, flowers and insects to be found in my small London garden.
It was whilst teaching a history of ceramics course at Croydon College of Art and Design that I discovered my own style. Since then I have done extensive research into slips, liquid coloured clays, which can still be seen even under opaque high temperature glazes.
Some of my red pots are displayed on my Bucks Art Weeks gallery. Also there is a large platter (19.5 inches diameter), which is being exhibited from 19 Nov 2020 to 24 Jan 2021 in the online Winter Exhibition 2020, organised by the Thrown Gallery, Highgate. This platter, which is called Two Flowers in a Storm can be purchased through the Thrown Gallery for £220.
