I specialise in naked Raku and sawdust firing techniques. My ceramics are highly decorative reflecting a love of pattern. Bowls, open forms and small sculptural pieces are slip cast, hand-built or thrown. The finished pieces are burnished and polished. Designs are hand drawn through slips before firing, smoke brings them to life on the surface of the forms. Lustres may also be used to enhance the decorative effect. Inspiration comes from nature, birds, leaves and trees are a constant source.
