My ceramics exploit colour, variation and contrast and the relationship between pattern and form. I make individual decorative pieces
but I also enjoy the technical challenge of making tableware
in batch production. I am one of the few ceramists in Britain using the difficult medium of tin glaze, which requires decisive painting on the unfired, absorbent glaze: llike painting on blotting paper, it has to be right the first time. Tin glaze has a long pedigree (including Italian maiolica), but I make a contemporary interpretation of it, drawing inspiration from many sources including abstract expressionism
1950s textiles. I won the St Albans Museums Trust Prize in 2013 for ceramics shown at UH Galleries
