Festival: 2022

My work reflects a fascination with natural forms, particularly marine forms including seahorses, fish and shells. I combine flowing lines and sweeping curves in the construction of my hand built pieces.

I work in my studio in Ashbourne, using slabs of white or buff stoneware clay, which are sometimes impressed with texture from man-made or natural objects, before cutting, forming and assembling. With the larger pieces I often carve into the surface to shape and define the form. Decoration is often added with slips, oxides, resists and glazes before firing between 1200°C and 1280°.
