I hand build wildlife sculptures from stoneware clay which are then finished with oxides, underglazes and sometimes lustre and gold leaf. My inspiration comes from animals and birds around me in the beautiful Cumbrian countryside where I live. I am particularly fascinated by hares. I have worked in Tanzania so some of my pieces have an African theme with sculptures of animals I have seen on safaris and recent work has included some African figures.
Each piece I make is individually made and unique. I try to give my sculptures a personality of their own and create an essence of the animal or person rather than being an exact copy.
