Artist Statement

As a potter, I am drawn to simplicity of form. I love the synergy between exposed clay bodies and elegant, uncomplicated glazes. The use of geometrics in design and decoration also inspires me.

Techniques and styles such as salt-firing, raku, handbuilding and dry glazes all fascinate me. Using these to help create something from nothing gives me great satisfaction; that such explorations do sometimes produce pleasing results, gives me pause for wonder.

I am inspired by the daily things that surround us, and also by those moments of rare beauty that we only occasionally glimpse.

For the meantime I have stopped potting, but who knows what waits in the future?
