My hand-built ceramics evoke a feeling of the seashore and coastline. These imagined seascapes/marine landscapes encourage the viewer to see their own ‘picture’ rather than illustrating a specific view. Some are stormy, others quiet and calm or sunny and bright. Individually constructed boxes, vases, wall pieces and vessel forms feature washes of cobalt and copper with occasional ‘pops’ of yellow over a matt white glaze. I make my slab built work in my garden studio overlooking the Aire valley in West Yorkshire.
