‘A’ level pottery was my first experience of clay, I was hooked.
Many years of evening classes followed while working full time as an architect. Later further studies enabled me to gain more knowledge and skills completing a BTEC in ceramics.
Since 2000 I have had a small studio space at home where I can pursue my making using this wonderful material.
I find the varied world of ceramics fascinating and stimulating.

As an architect my ceramics are influenced by an interest in space, form & function which I endeavour to incorporate in my work. I am a founding member of the East Finchley Open Artists group. Membership of EFOA encourages me to develop and show my work to a wider audience. I am also a member of London Potters.
Clay is one of the most tactile materials, it is a joy and a challenge to work with. I take pleasure in making functional ceramics always with an eye to the form. As a contrast to my functional ceramics I work on sculptural pieces for interior and exterior locations. Much of my work is wheel thrown using stoneware clay often with forms assembled from many pieces.
