Self-taught ceramic artist creating individual thrown forms that have been altered and sculptured as well as contemporary wheel-thrown functional wares for domestic use. Small and large scale stoneware/porcelain pots decorated in glaze or slips. Specialist skills in naked raku firing.
My inspiration comes from both natural and man-made forms.
