Studio Potter

Sheffield, South Yorkshire


ceramics, slipware, tableware


Red earthenware clay has travelled from the mother rock. Levigated by glaciers, rivers and streams the detritus it collects on the journey provides its rich colour, depth and flexibility.

Currently based in Sheffield, my work is a meditation on my history; travelling and living between New Zealand, North America and the UK. Through domestic forms I am seeking balance between symmetry and asymmetry, order and play, utility and ornamentation, necessity and indulgence.
