About

Material is at the centre of my practice. My designs are the products of my experiments in materiality; for me clay is not a static material but a starting point - everything develops from the constant changes in mixture and method. I see myself as an alchemist, exploring material and mining new colours, shapes, and textures from the precise re-calibration of formulas.  It is, I think, this constant testing of material that stimulates my practice and gives my work its strength.
