Slab built stoneware vessels and sculptures with unique unglazed surfaces made by laminating and stretching different clay bodies and slips together.

Surface plays an important part in my work. I create my surfaces by forcing different clay bodies to work together in a thick slab which is then dried and stretched to make the surface crack, resulting in a unique surface pattern. It is from this thinner patterned slab that I construct my piece.

Whenever possible I do not apply glaze as I don’t want to obscure the surface pattern I have worked hard to achieve.
I like playing with texture. Some of my work represents my exploration into clay quilting. These forms can give the impression of being soft to the touch, which of course they aren’t. Its fun to see people touching them to make sure.
I make other work using a technique, again with different clay bodies, similar to the production of seaside rock where the pattern goes all the way through.
