Norfolk and Japan

Based in a former Thatchers Yard, next to Salhouse Broad, my rural location both informs my work and provides my materials.  

 

Combined with a  love of surface pattern and texture,  a strong Japanese influence resonates through my work.

The Mingai movement, Hamada and the ancient pots of Iga, Shigaraki and Tokoname all speak to my heart and hands.

 

My connections with Japan have brought  many  learning and exhibiting opportunities and I am grateful to have had met some lifelong friends with a shared passion for clay and craft.

 

New work concentrates on the beautifully faded blues of Boro quilts and a cheerful return to wood firing to obtain the elusive "Hi iro" - a exciting orange, created by the introduction of soda into the kiln at 1100 degrees.
