I work in an old Thatchers Yard to the East of Norwich  next to Salhouse Broad, which is part of the Norfolk Broads National Park.

 

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

My rural location  directly informs my work, providing me with raw materials for glazes and slips. Currently I am using reclaimed Silt from Hoveton Great Broad, giving me unique glazes and surfaces.  

 

Post grad training courses, workshops and residencies in Japan (Mashiko and Tokoname) have taught me many things, perhaps most importantly to make the most of what I have.    As a result my workshop is run on the most  pragmatic means possible. My wood kiln is fired using recycled pine, which is locally sourced and I use other reclaimed products from nearby firms.

 

I am very fortunate to be able to enjoy the beauty of nature surrounding me at the Broad and nearby landscapes, providing both visual and practical source material for forms and surfaces of the future.

 

 

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