My mission is to continue my reputation as a smoke-fired ceramic artist and to create bigger pieces to attract a high end market. I shall exhibit more in the ‘Craft Potters gallery’ of which I am a member in London. Also I would like to get more involved in writing articles and publishing a historical book on specialised ceramics with the intention of raising awareness to a larger audience.
My inspiration has always come from the beautiful environment around me
Including shorelines, landscapes and skies and also the bigger picture of the awe-inspiring mysteries of the universe.
I throw my pots on a wheel and use low fire porcelain.
My work is then burnished, partially glazed, then smoke-fired in sawdust.
Smoke- firing is an ancient technique which I mix with a modern contemporary vibe.
