I am a potter making tableware items such as jugs, bowls, plates and cups. I work mostly in stoneware. Each piece is individually handcrafted in my studio in Brighton, on the South East coast of England. My ceramics have a modern rustic look and feel to them and demonstrate my passion for simplicity in line, colour and shape. My palette includes shades of blue, pewter black and glossy white in varying combinations. I like to play around with overlaying these colours, this can create some beautiful effects.

 

I am predominantly self-taught and have learnt with Roberto Gagliano (Brighton), Ken Matsuzaki (Clay College, Stoke) and Debbie Prosser (Leach Pottery, St. Ives).

 

My studio is based at Coachwerks, a community artists' studio space in Hollingdean, where I spend my time making, experimenting and honing my technique. I currently sell some of my pieces online on nuMonday. My work is also stocked in The Found Gallery, Dunbar, Scotland and Ellishadder Gallery, Isle of Skye. You may also contact me directly if you are interested in any of my work.
