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

Reduced stoneware pottery, I like functional and practical wares, made to be used . I am very attracted to the traditional shapes of domestic wares which have the practical forms that time together with constant use has given them.

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

Its an exploration of form, with decoration that can complement it. I am aiming at tactile useful pots as these give me the most pleasure. There is real satisfaction in seeing the potential customer who feels the need to pick up a pot to feel it and appreciated its shape, as much as the way it looks.

Describe what you call yourself/your practice?: 

I am a potter, I have been doing pottery in evening classes for years but have only recently set up a pottery at home.

Your practice & activities include e.g workshops, teaching: 

I work at home using a gas kiln and I am still attending evening classes at Wobage Pottery workshops, Upton Bishop. Both of the resident potters create an open friendly atmosphere for the exchange of knowledge and ideas. The wood firings are a communal effort shared by all, with the opportunity of looking at, and discussing all the ware as the kiln is unpacked.

Exhibitions in the last 3 years: 

H-art 2022 and 2023
