I live and work in Flitwick, Bedfordshire. I have been a practicing artist for 10 years, have a BA Hons in Fine Art and a PGCE in Secondary Art and Design.
The focus of my thrown work is the development of glaze effects, using the surface as a canvas to produce subtle, atmospheric results. Each piece I produce is unique and I take great delight in the fact that, though mainly functional, each piece is a work of art with which people can interact on a very practical and personal level.
The pieces are extremely tactile with a beautifully textural surface produced by the careful layering of the glazes and their interaction in the firing.
I also produce hand built decorative pieces, some inspired by African Art and am constantly experimenting with sgraffito pattern and oxide decoration.
