My work directly reflects my year-round fascination with natural history, particularly plant-life when it’s wild. The methods I use, including colouration, ensure that each piece is a separate and individual work of art rather than using ‘mass-produced’ identical moulds. Everything is twice-fired, the colour being applied before the glaze firing at just under 1100°C. I studied ceramics at Bath Academy, have had many exhibitions in the North of England and in Scotland, and exhibit at Potfest annually. I have collaborated with literary people, and produce over a hundred ceramic eggs every year for the official Beatrix Potter Easter egg hunts in Cumbria, and now Japan.
