For me, after many years working in publishing, in particular on the lovely, World of Interiors Magazine, I now have the opportunity to express through ceramics my designs for use in the interior of our homes and workplaces.

The material used is a Cornish stoneware clay and which is thrown on the wheel or hand-rolled and gently impressed to construct carefully conceived, fluid vessels and domestic ware that are unique but belong to a family of similar design.

My love affair and commitment to plying my craft in clay gives expression to my creative intuition and experiences of life. Nurtured by my artistic, talented family, my passion and appreciation of the hand crafted object lead me back to using the skill of the hand and eye. I make personal, unique and individual ceramics.

Ceramics can be very frustrating, in order to pull together the physical, biological and chemical parts I continue to devote time and attention to acquiring knowledge in visual, contextual, technical and production skills.

I am so fortunate to be a designer maker living and working in a rural-home base, a free spirit experiencing a life of excitement, exhaustion and reward.

Do please enjoy your ceramic art without fear and call me if you need another.
Each piece of work that I produce is a one off.
