I make an eclectic mix of ceramic sculptures, pots and planters. Elephants large and small along with pigs, teardrops and the occasional horse.

Working with clay is fairly recent to me. My first foray was attending a throwing class in 2014, but it was moulding the clay with my fingers, rather than using the wheel, that captured my attention. In an unexpected moment I found myself as a child at play again. It was enjoyable and felt like a healthy thing to do. So I continued.

Now I have a studio and run regular classes of my own. Remembering the simplicity of playing with clay is crucial to me. It’s an exploration, I can wander off. I make all sorts of things in all sorts of different ways, sometimes on a whim, sometimes more reflective and personal, and sometimes just to see if I can. The repeated themes in my work bring me back and collectively they are an expression of something deeper within.
