"The processes of transformation from raw clay to fired ceramics continually fascinate me"
My work ranges from figurative pieces, such as animals, to the more abstract forms of containers, and installation work. Raku has been a vehicle for expression over the years but more recently I have started exploring other forms of expression through surface and using different kinds of clays, slips and oxides.
I draw inspiration from the natural world, geological, archaeological landscapes, and from objects in Museums that talk of hidden narratives. The processes of transformation from raw clay to fired ceramics continually fascinate me, especially smoke and Raku firing. Recent work has centred around lockdown walks, using local materials for investigation and stoneware sculptures of endangered species.
Ceramic art and workshops
Part of my practice is running creative clay, mosaic and art sessions with groups which in turn can inspire themes and new techniques in my work.
