Making shape. Taking shape. Shapes and textures evolve in the clay as I work by hand and with a few simple tools. Surface marks are made by the action of smoke on a low fired ceramic surface. Colour arises as the largely unpredictable product of burning different materials to make the smoke.

From time to time I explore new forms and clays which remain unsmoked but almost always naked.

I am happy to discuss my work and creative process. Pieces are available to buy at gallery exhibitions and by appointment at my studio. Please contact me if you would like to discuss. “Making a record” shows an archive gallery of work no longer available.
