I graduated in 1990 from Loughborough
College of Art and Design in Ceramics.
I have been working as a full time potter
My influences include my interests in
plants, birds and yoga (I'm fascinated by
pattern both natural and designed)
All my work is earthenware, fired to 1125ºC
and soaked at that temperature for an hour
so that the colours are rich, and so that the object has a clear ring when tapped.
We try to fire our kilns on sunny days as we are solar powered!
The birds have an inbuilt hanger and require only a nail or picture hook to hang them.
