I work in an old Thatchers Yard, on the east of Norwich  next to Salhouse Broad, which is part of the Broads National Park and  it's environmentally protected areas, known as SSSI's

My rural location directly informs my work, it also provides me with a lot of raw materials I that can use, such as reclaimed thatch and silt from the Broads, giving me unique glazes and surfaces .  

 

Post grad training in rural Japan enables me to make the most of what I have.  My workshop is run on the most practical and pragmatic means possible.  I fire my wood kiln using recycled pine, which is locally sourced and I use other reclaimed products from nearby firms.

I can enjoy the beauty of the Broad and the nearby landscape as my source material both visually and practically.

My pots are mostly hand thrown using a variety of stoneware clays, ranging from  porcelain to a high iron fleck.

A love of surface pattern, texture and a  Japanese influence resonates through my work.

 

 

From 2016 I am able to offer students the option of individual , joint, or group tuition, both on the wheel and hand building.

Local accommodation Hotel/ B&B/Camping can be arranged.
