Pottery / Ceramics

I've recently left my career in the NHS to work full-time in my studio making pottery. I handmake and craft stoneware clay using hand-building techniques that is both functional and non-functional and am drawn to texture, elegance and neutral colours with occasional splashes of colour! I've been inspired by the beauty of the natural environment around me, together with influences from my travels. I particularly feel that handmade pottery is very much like a person’s life and reflects the potter’s touch - hand-built pottery can never be be perfect in shape – a little like being human and reflects my personality and life experience.
