My first experience of working with clay was life changing, here was a material and process that allowed ideas to be developed and made permanant in the firing. The majority of my thrown work is pierced and sculpted, sometimes the whole piece is reworked to create an almost organic shape. Inspiration comes from many sources, travel abroad, a natural form and taking time to live with the work to let the idea develop. All of my glazes are high temperature, 1285 centigrade to be precise, very beautiful natural stonelike colours and texture can be achieved which enhance the forms I have created. Currently my work has been focused on developing a range of porcelain sculpted jewellery with carefully selected glazes to create pieces with that timeless quality of simplicity and elegance.
