The process that particularly fascinates me is burning. I have built updraught, and then crossdraught, wood-fired kilns, and I have experimented with bonfire-fired pots and smoke firings.
Recently I bought an electric kiln, which enables me to make functional earthenware pots, whatever the weather.I use white slip as a decorative device and colour my work with oxides and apply transparent or celadon glaze. This has become a safe base from which I am experimenting further.
A passion for nature...
I am an enthusiastic naturalist, and have allowed my passion for wild orchids to inspire some large-scale ceramic sculptures
