Clay is a natural substance which I have studied extensively for the “other” reasons. After spending 20 years in civil engineering where soil is investigated for its bearing capacity, grading, and plasticity, I am now considering the earth’s materials from another perspective. Working with clay to make bowls, cups and plates offers an opportunity to think of the organic nature of our world and its inherent fragility.
I endeavour to create forms and decoration that are a pleasure to experience in the home, and in particular, useful for the very important activity of eating with friends and family. Inspired by nature, I decorate my pottery with images of flowers and fish.
