I am a contemprary slipware potter using the traditional techniques of slip trailing and sgraffito to create texture and pattern.
My work is handthrown on the potters wheel and individually decorated. I use porcelain clay which gives a delicate translucent quality to my work. When making my glazes, I aim for soft, natural colours reminiscent of a cottage garden. Patterns vary from grasses to lavender and roses and pieces are designed to be mixed and matched.
I teach Adult Education ceramics at Hills Road 6th Form College, Cambridge.
I also teach workshops from my studio in Cambridge, Uk - see classes page for details and booking.
