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. This exhibition supported the Down's Syndrome Association.
Neville Hall: Along with twelve other members of West Forest Potters, I shall be exhibiting at Neville Hall, Milley Road, Waltham St. Lawrence RG10 0JP, on Saturday 30 April, Sunday 1 May and Monday 2 May 2022, 10am to 5pm each day. Some of the pots, which will be shown, can be seen in Gallery 2.
