I am a ceramic practitioner designer & maker based at Barby, a village that sits on the Warwickshire & Northamptonshire border. I try to show commitment to my work by not replicating any piece so the owner can be confident that the work is unique.
By using the initial techniques of slabbing & coiling in clay the following impressed marks made on my work are created from found forms and objects from the seascape and landscape. Greenware is sometimes burnished. All work is internally stoneware glazed.
