My work is a mix of hand-built, thrown and altered vessels. They can be functional, whimsical or sculptural. 

 

Influences and methods are wide-ranging, but central to my work is an appreciation of natural form and landscape, a love of colour and of clay itself. 

The glazing process involves layering slips, reactive and eruptive glazes, often very thickly, creating rich textural surfaces. Work is fired in an electric kiln to 1220 degrees.
