Making Methods and Type of Work
Thrown and altered vessel forms - jugs, jars, bowls, plates, casserole dishes, vases, mugs. Some purely decorative, others functional. In salt glaze and Raku.
For the last 14 years I have made salt glazed high-fired stoneware and also Raku fired pots for the sheer enjoyment of it. My work is influenced by traditional pots, both Oriental and European, and by the twists and spirals found in Nature as well as those that spontaneously occur when my hand passes over wet clay as it spins on the wheel.
Every summer, since 1971, I hold residential holiday courses for aspiring potters of all skill levels and all ages.
I also have a BA (Hons.) degree in Ceramics/Glass.
I exhibit regularly in the UK and abroad.
