‘A Ceramic Landscape’

I create my Ceramic Landscapes using a variety of hand building techniques. This allows me to build up detail in layers so my pots are rich in texture.

I love to travel and watch the scenery change as I journey along. I also have a couple  of energetic dogs which means that everyday I’m walking among different weathers and landscapes, looking for those, sometimes dramatic, changes brought about by the seasons and weather.

I also look for rhythms and patterns in the detail of the landscape – be that trees or pylons and try to work these patterns into my ceramics.

The unique surfaces of my work are created with a combination of oxides, slips and dry glazes. I build up layers at every stage of making trying to generate a strong sense of depth, intrigue and atmosphere.

I graduated from Nottingham Trent University in 2009 where I studied a Decorative Arts degree and can now normally be found pottering away in the Red House Studio in North Hampshire.
