Hand built moulded and thrown ceramics in various clays. Unique, traditionally and raku fired works, for the home and garden.
Clay is one of the oldest materials that humans have been involved in and it is very exciting to be able to use such a primitive material to create contemporary objects. Most of my pieces are hand built, made by coil building, however nothing is ruled out, there is always the constant exploration of different techniques using new materials. I continue to produce raku decorative vessels, my triffids, but lately have been experimenting with white and coloured triffids in high fired stoneware which allows for different decoration techniques. There are also larger vessels made for the outdoors, coloured with oxides which take their influence from ancient Japanese ceramics. Last year I went back to tile making, an early love of mine, creating a large tiled wall mural which has yet to find a home, who knows where things will lead me this year.
