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 them for special effects. My designs are drawn from nature – animals, birds, fish and flowers. I feel that pots are not just for decorations, but should be used (dishwasher, oven)!
