I first started pottery in the 1990's in London. In Liverpool I attended studios run by John Parker and John Ayling, and later Richie Robinson, I'm indebted to them for their tuition, support and encouragement. In order to develop my craft I approached international master potter Mike Dodd, and with raku potter John Scott in the North East to work with them. This experience has been invaluable to me in terms of technique, but also in acquiring a philosophy and approach towards my work.
I now work from my own studio in Liverpool.
I enjoy making both functional and decorative wheel thrown stoneware pieces, the sort that you can look at with pleasure, but also functionally is a delight to use.
My inspiration and influences are varied from the British Studio Pottery tradition, infused with other current ceramics works, sculptural pieces and social auto-biographical ceramics to memories of my mum bringing home her pots from night class.
I've recently set up an online shop, please click here My Etsy shop if you'd like to buy some of my ceramics.
Please enjoy my web site and thank you for your interest in my work.
