I have been working with clay since childhood, having been fortunate to attend schools which taught all aspects of ceramics and firing. Since 2017 I have pursued my love of ceramics full-time.
Living in Upper Wensleydale, I am drawn to the dramatic landscape outside my workshop door.
I forage items whilst hill-running to incorporate into my work. I use ashes from fallen tree branches and local clay in my decoration. I throw and hand-build each pot using stoneware clays.
This new work is inspired by the shapes and shadows of the trees I run through in Mill Gill, a beautiful wooded area close to my home.
