I make decorative and functional earthenware ceramics. My work is wheel-thrown from red clay, often with added materials to give a varied texture. It is then sometimes torn, damaged and re-assembled to make vessels which are patched together. The pots are slip decorated with painted, glazed and Sgraffitto images drawn directly with a knife or paintbrush. Ideas are taken from my own sketches of back gardens, waste spaces and allotments.
