I use Spendcroft  red earthenware clay and a white ball clay slip into which I either dip, pour or paint a leather hard pot, the slip is some times used quite thinly allowing the red clay to show through.
After bisque firing I use a lead sesquisilicate clear glaze and fire in an electric kiln to 1100 degrees.

History

History

I came up to the Lake District as a student in the  early seventies and was, enthralled, excited and inspired by its natural beauty. During the next twenty years or so I juggled my love of painting and drawing with bringing up 3 boys, and full-time teaching.

My passion for ceramics was born about fifteen years ago when I encountered a wonderful ceramic blackbird by Anna Adams at Abbot Hall Art Gallery (the bird is now a permanent resident at Blackwell). I then began making ceramics under the guidance of Mike and Vicky Eden.

I set up my own workshop in 2007 converting the garage under our house which is set in an AOB between Silverdale and Arnside    

I sell my work through different galleries in the Lake District and North West and exhibit with Bay Potters, Northern Potters and Green Door Studios.

I am registered with Cumbria Arts In Education and Creative Partnerships and am available to work as an artist in education settings. I am also available to do workshops and demonstrations.
