Texture fascinates me. I instinctively want to reach out and touch an interesting piece. Texture comes in many forms; the clay, the glazes, and the way it is worked. Practicing in the beautiful surroundings of South Cumbria, inspiration comes from the nearby coastland, hills and valleys. I am proud of my journey to full-time artist and how my work has developed over many years.
Sculptural ceramics are created using hand-building techniques by applying surface decoration and playing with form to produce handmade, distinctive and individual pieces. It is a slow process and one which allows the work to evolve naturally. Explore the collections in the online shop and visit exhibitions to find the piece that speaks to you.
Commissions are also very welcome. They are a collaboration, a blend of the artist’s interpretation of the client’s concept. Usually the client contacts through Facebook or the website. We discuss your ideas and sketch out some designs together. It’s a more personal and meaningful process as you work directly with the artist to realise your unique ideas.
