"My work is strongly influenced by my time living and teaching in South East Asia"

My work is strongly influenced by my time living and teaching in South East Asia and experiencing the beautiful turquoise blue coastal line. Arts and crafts were abundant in every country, especially hand-built ceramic pots. Since returning to the UK, and then going into lockdown I used my time to explore the shapes, forms and colours I experienced on my travels. I glaze my work using a combination of matt and high gloss commercial glazes and my own glaze. I paint the glaze on the surface and then use a mouth atomizer to spray other glazes on top, layering the colours and seeing how these react in the kiln.
