Fluidity, fullness and lift are attributes I look to impart into my pots, always trying to bring the softness and suppleness of the material through to the end of the processes. This combined with the alchemic adventure of taking a base material and transforming it into objects of use and beauty is the satisfying goal.

A variety of different voices inform my ceramic practice, from East to West, Korea to Marshall, Karatsu to Toft. I hope that the combination of these influences and personal endeavour lead to pieces of work that have a subtle beauty that only clay can allow to happen.

I make a variety of forms, from rice bowls and lidded containers to drinking cups and pouring bowls. All work is thrown and turned on a slow turning kick wheel and fired to between 1220 – 1240°C with vapour in a neutral atmosphere.
