I make contemporary tableware inspired by Mid-Century Modern in monochrome and decorated ranges.

Tableware challenges me to make pottery that is both beautiful and practical. I am interested in the place where art and manufacture meet and I subscribe to the ideal of Charles and Ray Eames of getting the best to the greatest number of people for the least.

I write about European applied arts from 1850 to the present, with the emphasis on ceramics, and I work as an independent curator.

I am a trustee of the Society of Designer Craftsmen. I was winner of the St Albans Museums Trust Prize in 2013 for ceramics shown at UH Galleries and received the Judge’s Award for my entry in the London Potters’ 2017 exhibition at Morley College.
