I am a hand builder, staining stoneware clays and layering them with porcelain and coarse grain clays to create rich yet natural textures.  My pieces are predominantly artistic, but I am developing a range of functional wares and vessels that combine the utilitarian and the aesthetic.

By working instinctively, embracing the nature of clay yet also pushing it, I aim to achieve an air of spontaneity, freshness and surprise.

I am ever developing and learning, but the longer I work with with clay the more important its part in my life becomes – less another ball in the air for me to juggle with and more a cornerstone.
