ABOUT
 Ceramic Designer/maker

HISTORY

PROFESSIONALISM
 
I first became interested in clay when I enrolled on a pottery evening class . From there I was inspired by the versatile and tactile quality of clay and  went on to study ceramic design to degree level in Stoke on Trent. On completing my degree I have worked for a number of ceramic companies as a free-lance designer. As the ceramic industry declined in the late 1980s I developed my own range of ware, from functional thrown designs to individual sculptural pieces, sell through galleries and craft exhibitions. 

TEACHING AND WORKSHOPS


I have taught ceramics in FE colleges for a number of years, from entry level to HND. I also give individual tuition in throwing skills from beginner to advanced in my workshop near Stafford. I specialise in Raku workshops offering the experience of a Raku firing and an insight in the skills and techniques of Raku.


CURRENT WORK


I make sculptural figurative forms using thrown and hand-built techniques finished with my own range of virtuous slips and glazes. The pieces are based on my interest in man and machine, industrial architectures and African art.
