How would you describe the work you do and why?: 

I would describe my work as functional domestic ware, inspired by the coastal colours and its surroundings including the wildlife that accumulate there.

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

being an artist means to me to express my new ideas on a three dimensional functional form. to expand my knowledge of pottery including the glazing and overall finish of the work.

Describe what you call yourself/your practice?: 

I recently discovered pottery after doing ceramic animal sculpture for many years. I wanted to keep some of the sculpture and included them onto the pottery in the form of sprigs and to expand my practice as a ceramic artist. I wanted to expand my knowledge in glaze technology and firing practice.

Your practice & activities include e.g workshops, teaching: 

I do on occational run ceramic animal courses but I would like to run some pottery workshops in the future.
