I work in earthenware,
using simple slips and glazes
to produce figurative work
often depicting rural scenes,
and large highly decorated
thrown pieces.

"I thought clay must feel happy in the good potter's hand"

I love this quote from the writer Janet Fitch, although for me the inverse is true - good clay in my potter's hands makes me feel truly happy.

We never really know where life is going to take us but one day mine led me to the door of potter Geoff Fuller who allowed me to become his 'apprentice' after a fashion.



2020 and another busy year - a return trip to Earth and Fire and the second year of Celebrating Ceramics at Waterperry Gardens.

Art in Clay at Hatfield is always one of my favourite shows - there is just so much going on and it features the best makers working today - it's really worth a visit.

Celebrating Ceramics at Waterperry Gardens in Oxford is in its second year and was a fantastic event in 2019. It is a big show featuring lots small marquees in a beautiful setting with lovely food and music. 

Both shows have fantastic people exhibiting and I am extremely proud to be selected for these events.

Of course the year wouldn't be complete without the wonderful 'Pots and Food' which is just so much fun and features some of the most fantastic makers around.

Art in Clay, Hatfield House

Now in it's 26th year, Art in Clay at Hatfield House goes from strength to strength and has firmly established itself as one of the most important ceramic events in Europe.

Pots and Food, Wardlow Mires

Simply the best show of the year - fantastic makers, lovely food and drink and the unique atmosphere of Wardlow Mires, courtesy of Pat and Geoff Fuller and their unique approach to life.  Don't miss it.
