I love playing with clay - enchanted by the plasticity, tactileness and malleability of it, still, even after 20 odds years later!

I love making things with clay. I guess I am a bit quirky one, as I love making quirky things... For more than 25 years. The malleable qualities and versatility of clay makes my imagination run riot. Almost everything is one off, I don't use molds, not yet anyway.

I live and work in Bristol where I rent a tiny studio space. There I make hand-built ceramics from stoneware and mostly porcelain clays. I have a penchant for varied and dynamic styles and often add found bits and bobs into my work.

I am inspired by everything around me, but mostly by the beauty in eroded, time honoured surfaces, and shapes that endured their journey through time. They call this Wabi-Sabi in Japan.

If I'm not getting my hands dirty with clay, I have a go with painting, designing and making objects using mixed media but clay has always had that special place in my heart.
