I trained at Loughborough college of art and design and graduated in 1995 I worked briefly work as a thrower in a pottery in South Wales before starting on my own in Frome Somerset in 1998. I moved to Modbury in south west Devon 20 years ago. Im a potter and I make function thrown kitchen and tableware. My love of food has always been at the heart of my work. My hope is to make pieces that contribute to the rituals and pleasures of preparing and enjoying food either on your own or with friends and family. Influences ranging from the country pottery traditions of Western Europe, the rich glaze traditions of North East Asia to modern and Gothic architecture and the ever inspiring beauty of nature have informed my ideas and shaped the finished pieces.
