I make one-off and batches of pots in porcelain and stoneware to be enjoyed in use and display. Inspiration is varied; oriental and western ceramic traditions influence form and decoration. I’m drawn to mid-century printmaking, lettering, botanical detail and bird forms, which translate well into monochrome pattern on porcelain. Underpinning the visual appeal, sound craft skills are fundamental.
