Location: St Albans, UK
I am a potter who focuses on making good quality, functional pots mainly in stoneware but also with a range of honey glazed slipware. I enjoy experimenting and have made garden pots using local brickearth dug from my garden mixed with a standard terracotta.
My background is a broad one with interests including music making, geology and geography. I taught English in Malawi where I met my husband, another VSO, and I returned to teach geography in the UK. I retired to have a family, and since than trained in ceramics through City and Guilds. I now help run the Dacorum and Chiltern Potters Guild. I love working with my hands, and to transform a mass of clay into a fine piece of pottery is deeply satisfying. To enable others to share my passion is another gift.
