Making pots has meant excitement, challenge and joy over the last 35 years. Drawn to the craft initially as a personal therapy, I still experience as a miracle each vessel formed from the combination and transformation of water, earth and fire.
Function in its widest sense has always been a consideration and I enjoy using in everyday life the wheel-thrown goblets, mugs, plates and bowls I've made over the years. Recently, I have a more playful approach, employing a variety of making methods, of clays, of slips/oxides and of decorative techniques. Vessels are designed to contain plants, candles, poetry, water - and wind!! Votive pieces in a sense, celebrating nature. Surface texture and colour allude to the sea, rock, rockpools and lava flow.
