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

Decorative functional stoneware. I get joy and a real buzz when friends and customers leave my studio with one or two of pieces.

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

I have been interested in ceramics ever since visiting The Bakehouse Gallery in Fishbourne some 30 years ago. At that time I was a builder with very little free time or artistic flare, but that single visit planted the seed to encourage me to try my builders hands at pottery as a hobby. It became addictive and brought out the creative me, that I suspect we all have hidden away.

Describe what you call yourself/your practice?: 

Mature, potting late comer.

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

Whilst still building I attended short pottery courses including one with “The Flying Potter” Jon Williams, at Eastnor Castle. I now have a well equipped studio.

CV & Education, relevant & leading to your artistic practice: 

Short pottery course at Hereford college with Pierre Williams as tutor. Full professional development certificate at The Forest of Dean college with Nigel Lambert as tutor.

Exhibitions in the last 3 years: 

My wife and I spent 3years in New Zealand 2006-2009. My earlier raku work was displayed in a Kerikeri gallery where several were sold to tourists.
