I have been working in clay for over 20 years. My studio is located in rural Dorset with countryside views. The landscape is constantly changing and I occasionally see deer strolling through the fields. The Jurassic Coast is nearby with a coast ranging from sandy beaches to jagged dark rocks protruding from the cliffs, with glimpses of fossils. This inspires the colours, shapes and patterns used in my creations. I hand build in a variety of clays mainly firing at earthenware temperatures in an electric kiln.
