Background

“I draw inspiration from the immediate Exmoor landscape rather than research. My work is uncomplicated and I wish it to simply portray my love for this particular environment. It is personal and solitary and displays a simple and sometimes romantic narrative taken from regularly walking on Exmoor. It is important to me that viewers of my ceramics know that they are very definitely made from clay. I want to demonstrate a rawness and immediacy. In short, I like the clay to show itself.”

“Technically, I work as an earthenware ceramicist, firing to temperatures no higher than 1080º. I usually use red terracotta clay. The surfaces of my work are created by multi-layering and I often fire each piece at least three times within an electric kiln. I create layers of colours and illustrations using slips, underglazes, glazes and lustres.”
