Although I am a Londoner, the natural world inspires me as well as people - their personal stories and lives adventures.
I was elected President of Cambridge University Pottery Society in 1996. My CV is varied but there's usually colour, fire, or people involved somewhere. I love ceramics and because I like to travel (in a camper van) I have to make my own kilns. In Britain I tend to use Propane gas, but my kiln is designed and constructed by myself. If I'm in the Mediterranean it could be a hole dug in the sand and fired with driftwood and eucalyptus leaves. In the Australian Outback I have used empty termite mounds.
Currently I'm focused on my Butterfly Tiles. I import the bisque blank tiles from Portugal and then work on them. They can go through the firing process 3 or 4 times. I would like to collaborate with an interior designer or architect using my tiles and gold bricks.
I have work in private collections in the UK, Europe and the USA.
