A Little Background

 

All the examples on this site are typical of my work. If you are interested in owning one of my pots, please feel free to get in touch via the contact page, so we can discuss your requirements in detail.

 

I have enjoyed using clay as a creative medium on and off for over forty years, both as a teacher and student. Having taken early retirement from my job as a Headteacher, I have finally been able to devote more of my time to developing new ideas and experimenting with different techniques.

 

My main focus has been on developing alternative firing methods and in particular Naked Raku.  Every firing brings the possibility of perfection or disaster and that’s what makes it so exciting.

 

I also make animal sculptures which are fired to stoneware temperatures which ensures they are frost-proof.
