Profile

I make beautifully unique wheel-thrown stoneware and raku pots and lamp-bases in my home studio in Bear Flat, Bath. I love using recycled materials in my work, particularly sea-glass and horsehair.

My main interest is Raku – an ancient firing technique involving fire, smoke and water. Each piece is beautifully unique as the fire affects the glaze in many different ways and produces the most amazing colours, metallic flushes, or crackle. I love the copper flushes in the turquoise and black crackle pots, as well as the stunning contrast in the simpler black and white crackle. I also make horsehair raku pots and lamp-bases, which are very eye-catching with their random beauty and timelessness. Sometimes I also use feathers or sugar in this process.

I also make bold stoneware bowls and pots, and use sea-glass and recycled glass in the bottoms, making each one beautiful and unique.

I also offer pottery lessons and courses and love talking to people about my work and how it is made.
