"my new ceramic work responds more to my emotional feelings and decorative ability interpreting the environment I live in."

My Career Development

Through Plymouth College of Art and Design I had the opportunity to study ceramics and glass and fell in love with the pyrotechnics of Raku. I continued my professional development expressing the love of hand building pots and post firing in an outdoor environment using my hand built kilns. I develop my own unique style of creating sculptural ceramics with rivers of Raku glaze.I have taken part and exhibited in the international ceramic festivals at Hatfield, Farnham and Oxford, also having been made an elected member of the British Craft Potters Association in 2000, The Devon Guild of Craftsmen (now MAKE Southwest) and had the honour of exhibiting my work at the Victoria and Albert museum.My Inspiration for Creating my Work

A constant theme in my work is drawing from the inspirational South Devon coast and countryside where I live, from the smooth pebbles on the beach to the sunsets and wilderness of the moors. Walking, sketching, and painting in oils, the South West Coast path is inspiring for new sculptural shapes and forms.
