My first recollection of ‘doing pottery’ was at the age of 8 paddling in a stream and making ash trays and little bowls from lumps of clay lying beneath my feet. Later I took pottery classes, culminating in full time study for a Bachelor of Arts in Ceramic Design, which was huge fun.
I thoroughly enjoy ‘messing about’ with all aspects of clay and discovering what can (and cannot) be achieved with it. Think ‘The Great British Pottery Throw Down’ without the stress!
My passion is making something useful such as domestic ware and a large chunk of my heart will always be in the pottery studio.
