I have been fascinated by the technique and creative potential of throwing from my initial discovery of a pottery kick wheel in the art room of my secondary school over 40 years ago. My love of throwing has never diminished and consequently all my work begins its life on the wheel.
My current interests lie in the exploration of tensions between shape, proportion and balance through a personal exploration of materials and technique. I frequently alter shapes after initial throwing is completed by combining sections or re-shaping while the clay is still malleable.
Individual thrown pieces and slab constructed layered bowls and platters. Work is produced for exhibitions and includes objects based on natural and organic forms and elements of landscape, often incorporating heavily impressed decoration.
Stoneware glazed work is fired to 1260 deg. C in electric top loading kilns. A white stoneware body is used for most crystalline glazed pieces and also for low temperature burnished and pit fired pieces.
