I love the natural world and like my art to nod to that – ceramics that celebrate the clay itself with minimal decoration/glaze, and objects made from found items and rusty wire. I have recently been making clay animals with a realistic appearance.
I find creating something is life enhancing. The act of doing is as important to me as the final object.
I've worked in design-related fields all my life. I first played with clay in 2013 and was hooked. But I was only a very occasional potter until recently, when I was lucky enough to have my own studio and be semi-retired. Now I'm looking to share my work and hopefully sell it too.
