Festival: 2018

I make wheel-thrown decorative and functional stoneware ceramics in simple, elegant forms with a subdued and gentle colour palette.

My appreciation of pared-back design and natural materials is integral to the development of my own visual language. I am influenced by places and things to which I am drawn – the curve of a hill or line of a wall, wide open spaces, the sea and sky, sand and pebbles.

My practice is guided by my belief that good craftsmanship involves care, skill and attention and I hope that this is reflected in my work.
