I have been making ceramics for 10 years now, including a 3 year BA Honours Ceramics degree at Bucks New University (High Wycombe). I enjoy making both vessel based objects (mainly pots) and abstract sculpture. My inspiration largely comes from 20th Century artists, particularly Hans Coper, Barbara Hepworth and Anthony Caro – also from the work of many of the Far Eastern ceramicists from Korea, Japan and China. I love to wander around the ceramic galleries of the V&A and British Museums.
I have my own studio and kiln at home, so I’m free to make what I want and experiment. I’m happy to learn from my mistakes!
