I have been an artist all my working life training at Norwich school of Art and Bristol University. I turned to ceramics when my first love, painting had gone blank on me and I was out of inspiration. I found an excellent class in North Walsham several years ago and an excellent mentor in Jo Arnold. My background means that I constantly experiment with materials, colours and shapes and I delight in the fluidity of the materials frozen by fire.
I like colour and organic forms but also like using the flames and natural clays and oxides to produce colour. Usings clay has been a delight and an inspiration and I have been spreading the love with my fellow potters in Bowthorpe running classes.
