about me
 
I graduated in 1990 from Loughborough
College of Art and Design in Ceramics.
I have been working as a full time potter
ever since.

My  influences include my interests in
plants, birds and yoga  (I'm fascinated by
pattern both natural and designed). My
mother had an antique shop: I love old
china and hand made objects.
about the work

All my work is earthenware, fired to 1125ºC
and soaked at that temperature for an hour
so that the colours are rich, and so that the object has a clear ring when tapped.

The tableware is all functional, however a
dishwasher will damage the gold lustre after time.

The birds have an inbuilt hanger and
require only a nail or picture hook to hang
them.

My pots are all fired in kilns made by
Northern Kilns:
