I am a Yorkshire based artist working from my studio in Leeds and have developed a new body of work during 2015. I use different building techniques and throwing to produce a range of earthenware pieces with a strong identity. All work is decorated before the initial biscuit firing using slips together with sgraffito and inlay techniques. I respond to each object individually, the decoration evolving to create designs inspired by contours and structures in nature. The fired pieces are finished using a variety of transparent glazes to give a range of gloss to matt surfaces.
