All my work is hand built as individual pieces. I either roll the clay out in slabs, fold and join them together or build shapes up with coils - often I combine these methods.
I make hanging bird sculptures, vases, pictures, bowls, plates and tiles and lots more. I experiment with different patterns and the way coloured slips, oxides, glazes or glass are showing up in the patterns.
My figurative work is stylised and quite quirky, I like to see how the twist of a head, for example, changes the whole expression.
I have my own kiln in which I fire my pieces to 1250 degrees. This means they are frost-proof and can also be put in the dishwasher.
