My work is a collection of thrown, simple, elegant porcelain forms. I use a limited palette of stains, oxides and slips, splashing or sponging away areas and inlaying lines. I work predominantly on the wheel, aiming to capture a feeling of movement and spontaneity.

Most surfaces are unglazed and lightly sanded, resulting in a soft, matt and tactile surface.

I have many fine art and design influences including Howard Hodgkin, Miro and James Tower. I am also inspired by random marks and textures, for me a simple line, be it intentional or accidental, can be simply beautiful.
