Clay, in all of its forms. is an exciting, malleable and wonderfully diverse material.
I love its tactile qualities in both it's raw state and when formed and fired into vessels and sculptures.
The work that you see expresses aspects of my personality and the various influences from my life which have inspired me to become a ceramic artist.
My aim within my work is to bind the ancient to the modern and to allow this connection to expand and develop in a way that uses traditional skills and techniques, creating original contemporary designs within my ceramic practice.
The work that you see in my online Gallery is created by using a coil-building method, as opposed to throwing on a potters wheel.
My designs are often inspired by my travel experiences around the world during my career as a Tour Guide. I have also been influenced by traditional pottery vessels that are still created and used in the less developed world of today, as well as ancient ceramic forms that can be viewed in museum collections across the globe.
Please contact me if you would like any further information, would like to discuss purchasing any of my work, or a future bespoke commission piece.
