Ceramics

I work in my garden studio surrounded by trees and plants. I make my pots mainly by slabbing, pinching and pressing. Texture and movement are important in my work and each piece evolves organically. When constructing bowls and dishes I use moulds to support the clay and to construct the shape. I press and smooth the clay to produce thin, delicate pieces. Many of these are cracked in places by using a heat gun. Following bisque firing, colour is used to emphasise cracks, tears and texture by underglazing with oxides, then glazing before firing at 1260 degrees in an electric kiln. Some of my pots have the inside base decorated with sea glass collected from the beach in the Sicilian village where I was born.
Much of my work is influenced by the dramatic landscapes and diversity of natural forms found in my native homeland. I’ve also drawn on the Warwickshire countryside and other natural influences to produce the subtle curves, patterns and textures that are emblematic of my work.
