Path and Inspiration I came to ceramics rather late in life, but was hooked immediately. I went from taking evening classes to a BTEC 3 in Ceramics over a few years. As my practice grew and my throwing improved, I transformed my garage into my ceramics studio. I now divide my time between making, developing glazes and teaching small group classes.From early on I was always fascinated by the variety of clay bodies and their specific qualities. I'm inspired again and again by Japanese classic ceramics.
Process and Practice Vessels are thrown on the wheel, flatware usually slab-built. I like to keep the forms simple and showcase glazes I develop to achieve a rich surface. I use different clay bodies for the intrinsic qualities of each. I sometimes leave the outside of the pot unglazed, to make the most of black or/and textured clays. Apart from raku-fired pieces all my work is functional and intended to be used and enjoyed by the buyer.
