I work in high fired stoneware, making ‘gesture’ figures, which are often highly textured and boldly decorated sculptures. I also produce a range of tableware in lively forms, decorated with vibrant colours.
I first began to make with clay following a major accident (2004) and through courses with internationally renowned ceramic artist Sandy Brown at her studio in Appledore in Devon. I went on to graduate in ceramics from Central St Martins College of Art and Design and work from my studio in Barnet. Sandy's truth of expression remains a founding influence.
Clay is the a material which most closely allows me to respond and interpret the world around me and whilst my work has taken many forms it is always centred the expressive possibilities available through clay. It has a capacity to reveal hidden, sometimes ancient, knowledge.
I have exhibited at the Society of Designer Craftsmen on a regular basis and in a solo show in their Shoreditch Gallery and Pangolin London, at the Red Gallery, the Brick Lane Gallery, together with taking part in the London Design Festival.
