I have been working in clay for nearly 30 years and now live in Kent and teach ceramics and work as a pottery technician within adult education. My work is usually hand built in various clays - stoneware, earthenware or crank. Coils or slabs of clay are formed into birds, horses, walruses or villages scenes winding round hills, with oxides and slips highlighting texture.

Inspiration comes from patterns found in nature - anything from ripples in sand, to the pattern of ploughed fields - to influences from further afield, such as villages in the Mediterranean that cling to the cliff face.

Stoneware is fired in an electric kiln to 1270°C, and earthenware to 1080°C.
