I have been an amateur potter for 20 years, now retired I have time to make what I want and am pleased that others can enjoy my work.

As a maker I love…The way the clay flows in your hands when throwing.

The challenges of new forms.

The excitement and anticipation before you crack open the kiln.

The pleasure of a copper gleam revealed when the carbon is scrubbed off a raku piece.

Holding a finished piece of your own work knowing you have caused soft shapeless clay to be metamorphosed into a permanent form that can last millennia.
