I hand build all my creations using rugged 'crank' clay. I create detail and texture on the clay surfaces using natural found tools. These combine with the natural forms and shapes to create a varied, stimulating surface texture and interest to my ceramics. The clay form is enhanced by my unique colouring from natural oxides and glazes giving the objects a rough, natural feel. The objects are fired to stoneware or 1260C making them strong and robust. It is the sometimes tumultuous environment and rolling landscapes surrounding my home and garden which inspire me.
