I first became interested in pottery when I was teaching English in Japan, learning handbuilding methods at a pottery school in Tokyo. I started to learn to throw pots on an electric wheel at evening classes in London and later began to experiment with glazes.
Now I work from my small studio at my home in Hunter’s Bar. I throw the pots from stoneware clay and fire them twice in an electric kiln. I have formulated some of the glazes I use.
I like to think of people using my pots, as we do in our home. When designing them I look for a shape and a glaze that will complement the food or drink they will contain. The way a pot feels in the hands and how it looks on the table are what interest me.
