Artists Statement

Artists Statement

My work consists of small batch production and individual functional tableware pieces informed by a strong interest in both ancient and contemporary ceramics and manmade patterns, textures and colours across local landscapes. I have a strong interest in materials and process, and continually trial new ideas, keeping my work moving and developing. I try to keep pieces simple, unfussy and contemporary, my intention is for them to be both visually appealing and a pleasure to handle and use. Coloured slips and decorative surfaces are added to greenware and a white tin glaze is applied after bisque. Pieces are fired in an electric kiln to 1160C.
