Most of the pots are initially thrown. I then use turning and
decorating to further refine the shape created on the wheel. The
colours used are muted greys, blues and greens often marked out with
darker lines of patterning. Stripes, spots and crosshatching help map
out the surface and reveal aspects of the form of each pot.
Pots are mostly thrown, but sometimes press moulded or slab built. Patterning is usually incised, sgraffito or painted. Muted colours are achieved with a combination of cobalt, iron and manganese oxides. All work is reduction fired to 1280 C in a propane gas kiln. I use several different varieties of clay and a number of glazes to give different colours and textures to the finished pieces.
I am essentially self taught, having discovered pottery making after
studying chemistry at university. I have worked as a potter for twenty
five years and have exhibited widely throughout Britain and also in the
United States, Japan and France.
Currently Chair of the Craft Potters Association
