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 (usually) run small classes in my studio and outside locations, firing and glazing and returning work to happy children & adults.
During C19 / lockdown I posted clay and provided on-line tuition to individuals, pairs, parties, GSCE & A level school groups. in Autumn 2020 I set up a weekly clay course at a local school for age 14+. In Spring 2021 I extended my teaching to include guest lecturing at Middlesex University, for their Ma. Creative Entrepreneurs course.
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!

Deliveries & packing: All my on-line orders are sent out promptly and by first class delivery.
My packing is recycled, paper and eco. I reuse boxes, pack with paper tapes and eco-beans [foam made of starch not plastic compound] and double box where necessary so the work arrives safely.
Collections can be made from me without the p&p cost if you’d prefer [I am in the SE7 area of London] just email me to discuss, and I can also work out any combined postages.
