Ceramics Photography Sculpture

My ceramic work is evocative of natural forms, often statuesque and always full of character regardless of scale. I am a hand-builder and use coils to construct sculptural forms, for interior and exterior domestic settings, whereas the smaller pieces are modeled by pinching, modeling and component construction. As well as organic form, I am driven by colour and texture: a visit to Rajasthan in December 2022 inspired new textures and responses in my making which are clearly visible in some of the work you'll see here. Larger, more ornamental statement pieces contrast with handheld porcelain embellished with gold and platinum.

When not creating my own ceramics, I lead a highly successful Art department in a prestigious independent school.
