I studied ceramics in Oxford UK before setting up my first workshop in 1993, when I also began teaching community education pottery classes in the Cotswold. I initially worked in earthenware with slip decoration, fired in an electric kiln.
After a few years I moved to stoneware and succumbed to the temptations of firing in a gas kiln to explore stoneware reduction glazes using wood ash as a basic glaze ingredient.
After 2009 I had a large workshop in South west France, while continuing to divide my time between there and the UK.
After a few years I began to experiment with other clays and firing methods, and now work exclusively with porcelain and, since my latest move, all fired in an electric kiln
A few years ago I went to an exhibition of Abstract Expressionist painters in London and was inspired to try to achieve abstract ‘paintings’ on my pots. Together with these Abstract Expressionist pots, I also make a small range of domestic ware, all dishwasher and microwave safe.
In 2021 I moved back to the UK and am now permanently in Oxford where I work from a small studio, and sell through various galleries and ceramic shows.
My work can be found at the following galleries:
ArtinAction Gallery, Waterperry, Oxon
