My journey in clay started with burnished earthenware, fired with sawdust and seaweed to give random, smoky, patterns to enhance the traditional rounded vessels. Then I discovered the fun to be had with porcelain paper clay-being stronger and more forgiving than pure porcelain, you can work with very thin sheets which I texture with anything from shells to wallpaper. Pots are assembled and then pinched, torn and distorted to resemble shells and sea life. Most recently I have been using the same clay to make a series of portrait pots – some dark, some humorous.
I have work in a number of galleries in the South West and Surrey and regularly exhibit at Open Studios in Devon and in Surrey.
