History

History

After completing a post-graduate diploma course at Goldsmiths' College in 1984, I set up in business alongside teaching pottery in Adult Education Colleges.

My work has take me abroad to fairs in America, Belgium and Holland and in spirit to Japan by making work for an Ikebana Exhibition in Osaka.

I have worked with the Conran shop to design and produce a range of vases and lamp-bases, as well as collaborating on projects with interior and product designers.

The bulk of my work can be seen in British Craft and Fine Art Galleries. It is both sculptural and functional, drawing influences from both museum artefacts and modern painting.
