My interest lies in making large pots for the garden and the conservatory, to be used as planters but also to provide decorative elements in landscapes in their own right. The human face is used to decorate each piece. Faces from Greek coins, Indian and African sculptures and advertising from the 20th Century up to the present day are all influences.
Nearly all of my work is suitable for outside use.

I am currently working on pieces for use inside. I’m interested in giving the work an aged / antiqued appearance.
I sell from the workshop by appointment and also through shows:
Potfest in the Park, Penrith
Art in Clay, Hatfield
Anglian Potters exhibitions and Cambridge Open Studios.
Torquil Gallery , Henley-in-Arden, Warks.
The pots are hand-built using both coil and slab building methods in Crank stoneware clay using applied decoration of facial features in natural colours fired to 1280 C. in a reduction firing using mainly oxides and dry matt glazes using a gas fired top loading kiln.
