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.
Current Work and Availability
I am currently working on pieces for use inside. I’m interested in giving the work an aged / antiqued appearance.
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.
Studied at Bath Academy of Art. Ceramics was my specialist subject in a broad based art school -teacher training course.
I have taught art and ceramics throughout my working life. I taught secondary school pupils up to “A” Level, evening classes and also worked for the Bell Language School using Art and Ceramics to ' teach' English to foreign students.
