My pots are coil-built with experimental glazes, inspired by classical forms which were used for ornamental, functional and ritual purposes.
My interest in ceramics was first aroused by the shapes and styles of ancient artifacts - humans everywhere on earth discovered, quite independently, that useful articles could be fashioned from materials dug from the ground. We inherit an enormously rich tradition from which we can draw our ideas for making objects both useful and decorative.
Coil building gives me most satisfaction and enables me to explore a wide variety of shapes to interpret in whatever way I wish. I then experiment with different ways of glazing my work, hopefully to give pleasure to others.
