My potting career began many years ago in 1986 when I served a 4 year apprenticeship to a local potter in Norfolk. Following this I graduated from Anglia Polytechnic University with an HND in Ceramic Design in 1996. During my college vacations I worked for another local potter, which led me to become resident potter at a small tourist attraction in Norfolk. Here, for 7 years; I produced and sold my own range of hand thrown stoneware.

In 2005 I began teaching Adult Education pottery classes alongside consistently working in my small workshop in Oby where I built my raku kiln in 2009. My raku work consists of a range of both ‘naked’ and glazed raku vessels. Inspiration comes from landscapes of the tea plantations of Munnar, Kerala, architecture of Northern & central Thailand, and more recently from an interest in the surfaces of the planets in our solar system. Photography from the International Space Station has influenced my latest work. Forms are wheel thrown & coated with terra sigillata slips, some are then burnished, some glazed.

Alongside my raku work, I also make a range of functional stoneware.

Visitors are welcome to my workshop by appointment.
