I make hand thrown, functional and decorative vessels using porcelain clay. It is important to me that my pots are visually pleasing, tactile forms. The textures and colours I create are inspired by patterns and colours in nature. Each piece is thrown as thinly as possible on a potters wheel. When leather hard the porcelain is turned to finish the form. The surface texture is created with brushed slips and glazes are applied by dipping or spraying. I make my glazes from raw materials and carry out multiple tests to achieve the right colours and translucency that work best with the decoration. I studied 3D Design: Ceramics at Bath Academy of Art in 1980. I fit my passion for making pots around my part-time work as a primary teacher in Chichester.
