I love the tactile nature of the ceramic surface. I have learnt from Chris Lack over many years, and am now working towards an MA in Ceramics at UCA Farnham. I like to experiment with clay and take it in different directions.
My work has been inspired by long walks along the south coast beaches and in our beautiful local countryside. I investigate the division of lines, colours and textures of the rural landscape, and I am interested in how we perceive and interact with landscapes past and present.
I am currently exploring the use of text in my ceramics. I mostly employ white earthenware clay, using copper and other oxides to provide contrast and depth.
My work will be on display in Gallery 55 in Hartley Wintney from June 11th 2016, or you can see me with my latest work at various Made in the Hood events during the year.
I will be exhibiting at UCA Farnham MA Show in August 2016, and then at Red Steps Gallery in Whitway in the autumn.
