I began making pots in 1988. After completing a ceramics degree in Bristol, I went on to open Redland Pottery in 1993, a shop/workshop in Redland, Bristol.
In 2004, I had the opportunity to live and work on the beautiful Hampton Court Estate in Herefordshire where I stayed for two years.
I joined the Herefordshire Guild of Craftsmen around this time and enjoy exibiting with them and other shows and markets.
In 2006 I moved a few miles down the road to my new home in the market town of Leominster where I converted the cellar into a workshop and now spend most days making my pots when not out selling my wares at shows.
All my pots are wheel thrown using a white earthenware clay. The pots are then decorated using coloured slips and various techniques, including painting, sponging and sgraffito. Once dry and decorated, they are fired to 1000 degrees c and then dipped in a transparent glaze and re-fired to 1110 degrees c.
My aim is to make pots for people to use and enjoy every day.
My pots prefer to be washed by hand but they are suitable for the dishwasher.
They can be put in the microwave but not the oven.
