"Producing a range of functional and brightly decorated domestic ware"
I work with a smooth, white earthenware clay, producing a range of functional and brightly decorated domestic ware. My method is to throw on the potter’s wheel or, sometimes, the clay is rolled out and placed on formers that I have made. The pots are then decorated with coloured slips and other pigments and then fired in an electric kiln to 1120°C.
I no longer attend craft and ceramic fairs but my work continues to be available through four galleries in Cornwall including the Cornwall Crafts Association Gallery at Trelissick Gardens, near Truro and Bowji Gallery near St Keverne on the Lizard. For more information please call me or go to my website for details.
I have a studio on my smallholding converted from an old threshing house where I work surrounded, at one time by my grazing cattle, nowadays by a mature and wildlife-filled forest planted by us in 2002. In 2015 I started to keep bees in the “Balanced Bee Keeping” system. Both the woodland and the bees influence my decoration. Visitors are most welcome but please telephone to arrange a convenient moment.
