About

My core practice involves designing and making ceramics by hand. I take a minimal approach to form, creating vessels that act as canvases for my carved, incised or water-eroded surfaces. I take my inspiration from the textures and patterns found in the British landscape and coastline. I specialise in working with parian, a type of unglazed porcelain invented in the 19th century in Britain to imitate the qualities of marble. I also use a black stoneware clay to create contrasting pieces.
