I live in St Chloe, a small village in the Cotswolds. Potting has been a passion of mine since my school days. I recall my teacher and friend, Steve Sheridan, saying to me; "be careful to clean the clay from under your nails, or it'll get stuck there for ever...". It took me a few years to fully appreciate his meaning but I do now.
I make a range of functional cook and serve ware for the table and home. My work is high fired stoneware, using a small range of my own glazes derived from iron, copper and wood ash.
I enjoy making simple enduring forms that have function and purpose and that can bring joy to daily routines of eating, drinking and sharing.
