Bowls and Tiles

Studio pieces; playing with form, materials nature and the alchemy of clay to ceramics process- These all one off pieces. I make bowls, bottles, tiles, lamps, dishes and wall hangings - inspired by all things nature and the sea...

Digital Drawing

More recently,  I have been looking into and developing digital drawing and painting skills.This feeds into the design process and the possibilities are endless, I love the meeting of traditional techniques and new technology. I am learning all the time but I always bring it back to the tactile and I often wonder what we will be able do to achieve in the future.

Drawing is an essential part of any process I do, it aids my thinking and understanding, whether it's doodling and problem solving or a finished' piece for a particular purpose. These are available as working drawings, for sale alongside ceramics or can be commissioned as finished pieces. I work with graphite, charcoal, inks and emulsion to create atmosphere, texture and a sense of place and moment.

Dog and animal portraits

With a good picture and, if possible, a meeting and a play - I can create a bespoke portrait of your best friend. I work in charcoal, pencil, mixed media or digitally... whatever fits, every one is special, takes time and will capture the character of your furry of scaly family pet.


Ceramic Portraits

Ceramic biographies:  Tell a story in clay. I start with a story or an observation, a look or an exchange and build these portraits (real or imagined). I can work from photographs but they are an artistic response to character and narrative.

Coastline Tiles

Capturing different coastlines as I walk and explore. I come back to the studio and work from photographs and sketches to create fresh and atmospheric, one off  pieces which often inform materials and processes in other ceramic pieces.
