I am a Dutch potter, working from my garden studio in Oxfordshire. I make functional stoneware. Everything is thrown on the wheel and each piece is unique.
I decorate leather-hard clay with a patterned ceramic roller, and I apply a white glaze, made for me in Ireland, for a simple, rustic and elegant appearance.
With many of my pots I use akebia for handles. Akebia is a vine which I discovered during a trip to Japan to visit potters.
