I was born 1966 in Ipswich, Suffolk and subsequently qualified and practiced as an architect, living in London for around 25 years. During this time I learnt to throw pottery on the wheel through a mix of evening classes, residential throwing courses and kiln firing/building workshops and courses.
Having re-located to Bath in 2007 and following a period of working part time as both architect and potter I became a full time potter in 2011, working from my own studio in Bath Artists' Studios.
I produce finely thrown contemporary style ceramics in stoneware and porcelain, both domestic tableware and decorative work. My work is currently exhibited in galleries throughout the UK.
I am particularly concerned with shape, proportion, and the contrast and overlap of colours and textures, in both the tableware and decorative pieces. I work in a predominantly natural palette of blues, greens and browns. My small batch domestic ware is made using a white stoneware, and the decorative pieces are generally made in either porcelain or stoneware, mostly in vessel form of bowls and vases.
My ceramics are all hand thrown on the wheel, and fired in an electric kiln to cone 8 (1263 deg C).
