I have always had a strong interest in pottery. I especially enjoy the decorative components of working with clay, such as, carving, painting and more recently working with gold lustres. Colour is also a very important aspect of my work and I am always looking for that element of surprise in each piece.
There is something very special about being able to work in a craft that is centuries old ….to see the pleasure a simple bowl can give, whether it is just being held, or used to serve delicious food to friends and family.
I studied Fine Arts in University, but as a Potter I am essentially self taught. I will continue to grow by improving my throwing technique, and by experimenting with colour, metallic lustres and texture. Future work will include decals and the layering of images.
