"ceramic animal and bird sculpture, together with more abstract forms for the contemporary house or garden"
I have been a professional potter since 1980, in partnership with Doreen Gardner at Orchard Pottery.
In recent years I have specialised in ceramic animal and bird sculpture, together with more abstract forms for the contemporary house or garden. Some of my work is slip cast, altered and modelled on before hand finishing and painting. Other pieces are handbuilt by coiling or slabbing often with press moulded elements. All pieces are stoneware fired and are suitable for garden use.
The full range of our garden ceramics is shown at the RHS Hampton Court Flower Show in July.
