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.
Forthcoming exhibition: Bucks Art Weeks
I am delighted to be participating in this year's Bucks Art Weeks exhibition in mid June. I shall be exhibiting my pots at Stotts Nursery, which is near to junction 5 on the M40. It's about half a mile driving south on the Ibstone Road. The show room will be open 11am to 5pm on nine days in June: Saturday 12, Tuesday 15 through to Saturday 19, and Tuesday 22 through to Thursday 24. A selection of the pots, which will be exhibited, can be seen in Gallery 1 and further information is available from Bucks Art Weeks, including a map pinpointing Stotts Nursery. My co-exhibitor is Sally Dorrity, who is also a potter. Refreshments, including gluten free Victoria sponge, flapjacks and chocolate banana bread, will be available.
