Welcome to my website.

I live in a hamlet near York, working from a converted stable behind the house.
I hand build and sculpt my work with coils and slabs. Then each piece is textured, carved and  painted with a mix of slips, underglaze colours and oxides. I then glaze and fire several times to achieve the layers of colour I want.

 

You can see examples of my work in the gallery pages.
