Thank you so much for having a look at my work. I’m inspired by London living, amazing Thameside locations with a compelling industrial history, a beautiful local lido, & of course sharing food with friends & family. My studio is right alongside the river, over looking an industrial landscape.
I like to hand build, & let the making show itself in the finished product. I use a fairly limited palette, and I often customise / work to specific commission. I work in stoneware and most often with a technique where coloured clays are inlaid into incised drawings or stamps and then mono-printed over the top & sometimes overlaid with decals from my drawings. I often use abrasion with my mark making, I like my items to suggest a long history of hard use.
I run small classes in my studio and outside locations, firing and glazing and returning work to happy children & adults.
I work flexibly, I can discuss bringing classes to your home, to your work organisation, to your group. I have taught under fives, SEN students, children, teens, adults, over 80's, GCSE students and at university level. I've taught community groups, privately and in schools. I have run sessions which animate museum & archive collections. I also teach on-line offering tuition on clay by post with on line tuition in clay skills, also small business skills / building cost & profit sessions.
Thank you for looking at my work. I don't make much of anything at once, if you like it, or would like to discuss classes or commissions, give me plenty of making time!
And if you'd like to add yourself to my contacts list to hear about new classes & sales, sign up for my [pretty infrequent] mailing list
Deliveries & packing: my orders are sent out promptly and by second class delivery. Let me know if you'd like me to quote on an urgent first class. My packing is often recycled and when I buy is paper and eco-beans [foam made from starch not plastic compound], I double box where necessary so that work arrives safely.
Collections can be made from me without the p&p cost, [I am in the SE7 area of London]. Just use the code COLLECT and pop me an email to arrange.
Thanks for your order, I appreciate your support
