Handbuilt and thrown ceramics

I am inspired by the world around me - the colours,
shapes and the textures of the landscape...

 

I love to explore the rhythm and movement of throwing clay on a wheel, excited by the freshness and spontaneity of the results.

I want each pot to convey its own spirit and character - to have a pulse and a heartbeat. I want the marks to reflect the journey of exploration and learning in each pot, just as a wrinkle or dimple depicts expression and character in a human face. My personal intuitive touch is an integral part of these pots - a dent in the soft clay, a tear, rip, and a finger or handprint in the glaze. It is inspired by the strong need we all have to be touched.
