Seaford, East Sussex


My thrown pots are individual pieces some of which are modified after throwing.  I endeavour to achieve symmetry throughout the form and a liveliness of lift and expansion.

I attempt to create attractive surface qualities influenced by geology (rocks, pebbles, strata and the effects of erosion) also by patterns of growth (lichen and mosses).  I work with stoneware and porcelain clays.  I select, develop and make my own glazes and slips for oxidised firings.
