Encouraged by an excellent teacher, I experimented with a wide range of techniques while developing my skills at adult education classes.
On retirement, I moved to Provence for a while and set up a pottery studio, working at the time with hand-painted earthenware.

My main body of work is currently stoneware: wheel-thrown domestic items such as bowls and mugs are individually decorated and reduction-fired in a gas kiln. Decoration with slips and oxides is inspired by the natural world: landscapes, trees, birds and fish are common themes. Handbuilt items often incorporate sculptural elements and I make a selection of small frost-proof items to bring a little creative magic to the garden.

I enjoy opportunities to try out ideas that are new to me: a recent challenge to produce 30 different plates on set themes was particularly inspiring.

Commissions are accepted: house signs and fairy doors are popular.
