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

My focus is mainly on functional ware. I enjoy making items that can be used on a daily basis. Food and drink can be better appreciated when consumed from a beautiful hand-made vessel. Making cappuccino cups is one of my favourite items and I’ve refined a shape that nestles comfortably in your hand.

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

For me working with clay is a very meditative activity, a way to switch off from my day job. Centring clay on the wheel requires me to stay focussed, calm my breathing, and find my own centre. I have learned to appreciate the unpredictability of the many stages of producing vessels meaning that every week presents a new learning opportunity as I experiment with different techniques.

Describe what you call yourself/your practice?: 

I am a ceramicist and do both throwing on the wheel and hand building.

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

I’m a regular member of Cup Ceramics community which is where I do most of my making.

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

I attended two terms of Ceramics evening classes at Hereford College of Arts a few years ago. I then completed the one week intensive course at Cup Ceramics before taking out membership. I also attend ad-hoc courses to further my learning. Most recently I attended a glazing course by Linda Bloomfield.

Exhibitions in the last 3 years:
