I trained in the 1960’s at Farnham School of Art and on the Harrow Studio Pottery course.
My thrown stoneware pots are reduction-fired in a gas kiln. I use dark quiet glazes as I think that food sings out when presented against these colours and it is integral to my work that my pots are used. For me, that is when they become complete. Form must match function.
Lichen, stonemason’s chisel marks on Yorkshire barns and ripples of water are constant sources of inspiration, represented on my pots by imprints, sgraffito and the three-dot ‘Cintamani’ motif painted on with oxides.
