Artist's Statement

Artist's Statement

I started making ceramics in the 80ís, inspired by the work of Janice Tchalenko and Sabina Teuteberg. I continue to enjoy working with colour and glaze to obtain exciting finishes on shapes which have their roots in both Japanese ceramics and 1920ís glass. Ceramics which can be used or just admired.
