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.
Normansfield Theatre: I exhibited with London Potters in the Normansfield Theatre, Langdon Down Centre, Teddington, on Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 September 2021. A selection of the pots, which I exhibited, can be seen in Gallery 1. This exhibition supported the Down's Syndrome Association.
Kingsbury Barn: Along with 18 other Dacorum & Chiltern Potters Guild members, I exhibited at Kingsbury Barn, Branch Road, St. Albans, on Friday 10, Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 September 2021. Some of the pots, which were exhibited, can be seen in Gallery 2.
