Hand built slab and coil organic shapes,textured with carving, impressions and inlay Surface Decoration using coloured slips, oxides and glazes. Different clay body’s Stone ware.

My pieces are hand built. I use different layers of glazes, oxides, slips and under glazes to achieve a varied colourfull surface. My work is influenced by natural elements and formations, such as rock, shell and fish shapes, music, and in the past Marilyn Monroe. New work includes a variety of clay bodies. With my all my work colour and form are of equal importance to me. I wish to create a whole piece of which the colour must be part of the form, both inside and out. I also allow the material and it’s properties help inform where the work will go. This determines the colour and shapes/patterns used. I take part in Sheffield Open up every year it’s a great way to promote yourself and meet with people.I have been creating with clay for a long time.
