I have been producing pottery sculptures for more than 30 years though for much of that time as an art teacher in a secondary school. Four years ago I left my teaching job to set up small workshops offering amongst other crafts pottery both hand built and thrown. This has enabled me to do more of my own work. I love experimenting with different clays and techniques. Recent work has included using hand mixed coloured clays, bonfire firing and working with mixed clays, though I have yet to have a ‘real attempt’ at Raku. Previous work theme have centred around using on glaze decoration on coil formed ‘Jacket’ sculptures but more recent work has taken the theme of trees using different hand building techniques, glazing and the use of pieces of glass. I am still trying to perfect the use of coloured clay on moulded plates and dishes.
