I have been potting for over 40 years. I hand build individual pots – boxes, jug forms & a variety of bottles & vessels. I construct from slabs & love trying out new shapes. I make in order to decorate, I love surface pattern, colour &...

Similar but subtly different thrown forms are gently compressed together evolving into a unique form that has an element of surprise inviting further investigation. Small enticing holes to look in and discover hold a strong attraction to the inquisitive. Thrown in Porcelain, singularly, they are...

I was interested in ceramics and sculpture from an early age, I went to a Ceramics class after school run by my art teacher, Mr Fishwick, and I loved it. I like creating both functional wear and sculptural pieces and I was a freelance sculptor...

My work to date uses a mix of hand built, press mould, and thrown techniques, scratching into the surface and then incorporating slips and oxides. Most include snippets of diary extracts, written during my travels or at times when the subtleties of an environment evoked...

Experimentation and investigation remain the key drivers in my work, with individual pieces often being subjected to several firing processes. All work is hand-built and fired to earthenware temperatures or less. Like well-worn beach pebbles, saggar fired pots are given highly tactile burnished surfaces to...

Contemporary porcelain thrown bowls and vases with simple elegant shapes, decorated with rich texture, drawing upon the inherent delicacy and strength of fine porcelain. The new Strata range includes statement pieces to give a dramatic impact - large spherical bowls and vases embellished with layers...

I'm intrigued by the effects of erosion and decay on surfaces. I am interested in the metal surfaces made in industry and the striking colours and textures that are created when these surfaces are exposed to the environment. I'm also inspired by the geological processes...

Educated in Switzerland, I studied paintings and ceramics in Rome and cramics at Manchester Collage of Art. Married and in England, I changed from earthenware to stoneware. I am making plates, bowls to use. Every item is different. I use stoneware colour glazes often mixing...
