Artists Statement

Artists Statement

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.
