The work I produce is hand made contemporary stoneware tableware
intended for everyday use. Focus is placed on function, form, mark
making and surface. The surface of my pots has developed over a long
period of time; forms evolve slowly yet constantly and decisively
aiming to retain a strong element of tradition. I aspire to incorporate
traditional skills with practical design, valuing the individuality of
each piece of work produced and the practicality, use and utility.
Hence each piece will work as an independent piece or part of a set.
The work is tableware although I no not seek to unify the work into a
Pieces mainly are thrown and altered forms combining throwing and hand
building, with the exception of the plates, which are thrown and
altered into turned wooden sycamore moulds of my own design. This
ensures an element of uniformity and control making sure each has an
identical foot ring and depth, which allows for the free movement of
the edges yet, still enables the plates to stack.
In 2006 Maggie Barns initiated the opportunity for me to work in collaboration with Master Potter Vincent Potier in Sauve, South of France. Vincent Potier is an international prize-winning ceramicist.
