I love the tactile nature of the ceramic surface. I have learnt from Chris Lack over many years, and am now attending a course 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. These are reflected in sculpted or slipcast 'Coast' and 'Forest' forms, and ceramic wall plaques which aim to project a sense of place. 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.
I will be exhibiting at UCA Farnham MA Show in August 2016, and then at Red Steps Gallery in Whitway in the autumn.
