Individual stoneware pots, distinctive for the painterly exploration of colour and texture - forms are wheel-thrown, sometimes altered, in a high-quality, coarse clay mix. My technique of layering vitreous slips onto the exterior surface provides a rugged, but refined texture to contrast with the satin-matt glaze inside. Artistic inspiration comes from the effects of light and weathering on architecture and artefacts, together with dramatic land and seascape. I began my experiments with vitreous slips whilst at Bristol (UWE) and, since graduating in 1987, have exhibited widely throughout the UK and abroad.
The medium continues to fascinate and challenge.
