"A strong sense of form and rhythm"
Trained at Manchester Polytechnic in the late seventies, I spent 3 years working at Kolonyama Pottery Lesotho, South Africa.
On returning to England, I worked in several potteries, joining Winchcombe Pottery in 2000, to work alongside Ray Finch for 12 years, before moving to Somerset to establish West End Pottery with my partner.
A strong sense of form and rhythm have always been a major part of my work. A love of function and decoration a reflection perhaps, of my training in the Cardew/Finch tradition and the years I spent in Africa.
Member of the Somerset Guild of Craftsmen. You can find my pots at the Guild Gallery in Somerton and the Marle Gallery in Axminster
