I have been a maker since early childhood initially using wood for models, musical instruments, and furniture but, after some pottery evening classes and seeing early Chinese pottery, I decided to focus on ceramics. I was also intrigued by the sumptupous glazes of Ruskin wares and the fact that glaze and firing records had been destroyed. After a previous research career in cement and concrete, here was a new area for investigation: reduction fired porcelain and stoneware to create exciting high temperature glazes.
I now make bowls, vases, mugs and other items that are fired to cone 12 in a propane-fuelled kiln. The work is sold through craft fairs, galleries, a cooperative shop, commissions and joint exhibitions, the venues being publicised on my website. Contact and collaboration is maintained via membership of the DCPG, Society of Designer Craftsmen, London Potters, West Forest Potters and The Oriental Ceramics Society.
