I am resolutely drawn towards fusing my artistic exploration with eminently utilitarian design. Making and firing functional pots, which are used everyday and which are only fully realised in the hands of their user; this is my chief source of inspiration. As my vision for a set of values and aesthetic constantly and gently shifts, so the body of production grows and changes.
I draw deeply from the tools, materials and processes of production. In so doing, I aim to capture the soft fluidity of clay on the wheel, slip and raw-glaze. This slideshow incorporates a random selection of inspiration, predominantly snapshots from the studio and kiln site, or from the rural environment in which I live and work.
