Festival: 2018

I make decorative domestic style ceramic ware. My work is based on folk lore, nature and the world around me, each set has a story attached about how they came to be. The themes encouraged me to play with functionality and to make imaginative use of traditional items.

I hand build, firing to Stoneware. Pots are carved and scratched to resemble bark or natural surfaces, then I model smooth knobs, carve handles and add sprigged details, how my pots feel is important to me. Finally painting with slips, adding oxides and contrasting glazes to finish.
