I have been making one-off ceramics for over 40 years.

My forms are strong and simple but have complex surfaces.  Each piece works as a whole, combining form and pattern.

My work usually uses techniques of layering glaze and painting patterns with wax between the layers of glaze, the wax acting as a resist for subsequent layers.  This meticulous process creates complex patterns and textures within the glazes.  The work is fired to stoneware temperatures.

Alongside my wax resist work I am making “ground” pieces on which layers of glaze are ground back to reveal patterns within the structure.
