In 1993-5 I lived in Japan and studied ceramics with a Japanese potter. In 1996 I achieved MA Ceramics at UWIC and set up my own studio. With a painting and printmaking background I was drawn to create ceramic wall panels in a new and contemporary way. Abstract designs are created by utilising inlays of different types of stoneware and porcelain clays. Fine lines are etched directly into the surface and a sparing use of oxides and glaze produces subtle colours and rich textures. My work is informed by rhythmical and repetitive configurations in landscapes, cities, mathematical patterns, and labyrinths.
