Artist Statement

I make saltglazed domestic ceramics, with a focus on teapots and other pouring and lidded forms, that are designed to combine functionality with visual impact and the power to stimulate the user’s imagination. Both the shapes of the pots and the way they are made owe much to my longstanding interest in aviation and the precision of engineered objects: I have a degree in Aeronautical Engineering from the 1970s and the forms and structures of flight remain major influences. Working in a European modernist tradition I draw on ideas from a variety of ceramic cultures and periods, as well as contemporary architecture’s approach to reconciling form and function.
