Making ceramics is my passion! I love to explore the feel of clay in my hands and the different effects it can produce. I work with stoneware clays and fine porcelain and enjoy experimenting with different glazes and firings to create contrasting colours, finishes and textures. All my work is individually handmade and every piece is unique.

My sculptural work is inspired by my love of nature and animals. My large Pear and Apple sculptures have been exhibited at artEast 2023, are lovingly made with coils of clay and take several weeks to complete. Each Pear and Apple has its own shape and character and makes a great centre piece in any home.

The horses, birds and sheep all start off as a ball of clay, from which I create the form. I spend a lot of time perfecting each piece, ensuring I bring movement and life to every one. My ceramic forms are smooth and flowing, with their own individual character. I wish to inspire people to pick them up, hold them and enjoy the feel and weight in their hands.
