About

My passion for clay started relatively recently and quite by chance some seven years ago. Due to repetitive strain I had severely injured my fingers and had to take a break for them to heal. My daughter’s play box lay invitingly open with a lump of clay. I thought that would work well to exercise my damaged joints, after a while it got a bit tedious and I decided to make something out of that clay. To my surprise, lo and behold, out came my first creature, a lioness. Until this day she looks on and encourages me.
Completely besotted with this medium, I have given up practicing my original profession (dentistry) and since never looked back.

However, I do give credit to the profession as it did introduce me to the many materials such as porcelain, wax and plaster to name a few. Today I happily incorporate some of them in my work. So thank you…

Whilst I love to work with clay I really need to be inspired and motivated to create ceramic pieces that are spiritual and close to nature – hence my animals . At the moment my muse seems to take the form of a baby skunk which I had the delight to see in a recent documentary. Nonetheless, I do make some everyday pieces in the form of tiles,cups,mugs and house numbers. These help fill the gap at times when I don’t find that one particular little creature that seems to call out to me.
