About

I love to experiment, creating unique and unusual shapes and exploring the range of texture and finish possibilities in raku and other ceramics.

As an ex University Lecturer I decided to indulge myself in creating, rather than teaching. I now work from home, with my own studio space for building and glazing, along with an electric kiln for bisque firing. I have a peaceful and lovely spot in the garden that houses my raku kiln along with all the other tools required for this essential part of the raku process.

Aside from raku I also create other studio pottery and sculptures and hope to be running hand building and raku workshops in the near future. If you are interested in this venture, please contact me via my website.

I hope you enjoy browsing my work and find something that meets what you are looking for, either for yourself, or as a gift. Thanks for looking and best wishes.

    Nature produces the most amazing art, all by itself, and I never cease to be amazed. The natural environment is close to my heart, so not surprisingly a great deal of my work has an organic feel.

    PEEWIT supplies this product, (a wooden spoon) which I sell alongside my condiment pots, if being bought for this purpose. Just trying to provide a service to my customers, by taking out the hassle of sourcing/buying the spoon, if they want me to.
