My objective is to make pots to be used, handled, loved and cooked in. It gives me great pleasure to think that they will be enhancing an occasion or recipe in many parts of the world and I feel this is a great privilege.
My interest in life drawing and print-making has led me to experiment with print-making techniques on paper porcelain. I also make beads from Precious Metal Clay which when fired, leaves pure silver. From these I make necklaces which also include porcelain, Egyptian Paste and ethnic beads. I love and collect world textiles.
I make stoneware and porcelain pots mostly on an electric wheel but sometimes I use my Leach kick wheel if I feel I need a slower rhythm.
