My work concentrates on form and texture. I make pieces that are simple yet have a softness, a freedom and a sculptural quality.
Thrown porcelain, altered and textured while soft. From domestic ware
to large individual pieces. Forged iron handles are added to some
forms. Surface treatments are influenced by the transient, sinuous
effects of sea on shore.
