Trained to be a ceramicist I found myself drawn to making functional items at the end of my studies, which has continued since 2005.
Approaching my practise as a potter but with the training of a ceramicist my work centres around the theme of producing one off handmade functional ceramics, decorative and sculptural qualities can be found inhabiting each piece.
Emphasising well-crafted forms, I have an intense relationship and intimate quality to my work. Expressive marks through a loosely decorated approach with contrasting surfaces inside and out using slips and glazing through a sometimes-unpredictable reduction atmosphere adds to the pleasure of the final results.
 
Teach from my studio www.thepotfactory.co.uk in Liverpool on a weekly basis.
