I am a studio potter based in the historic city of Carlisle.
My work is inspired by the beauty of nature. I use a range of techniques to apply decoration such as sgraffito, pressing leaves into the clay and textured rolling pins. They are decorated with a bold underglaze to create contemporary home and garden ware.
I use a range of clay to suit the needs of both indoor and outdoor purposes. My range also includes raku in which I use horse hair and feathers to create unique vessels.
I mainly hand build my pieces but I also use the slip cast technique in some areas of my work.
