How would you describe the work you do and why?: 

I love working with clay, exploring its qualities and developing my skills. I came back to throwing five years ago, retraining myself, learning to working in different clays (not just terracotta), to pull handles, to glaze, to turn etc. and I feel very lucky to be able to combine working with clay with teaching yoga.

My thrown domestic ware, is designed to be simple but elegant in form, whilst being functional. It is important to me that they are a pleasure to use and functional enough for every day use. I often part glaze the work to allow the qualities of the glazed and raw ceramics to add a subtle design and tactile quality of the piece.
