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 our 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.
Bucks Art Weeks at Stotts Nursery in Stokenchurch, Buckinghamshire, HP14 3XS, over nine days in mid June 2021. A selection of the pots, which I exhibited, can be seen in Gallery 1. Further information is available from Bucks Art Weeks.
