I first fell in love with pottery when I saw Minoan ceramics in Crete. I loved the cream coloured pots with joyful fluid patterns and animal designs and longed to recreate some of these pots at home! So I went to classes and learned to throw pots on the wheel and from then on I was hooked. I recreated some Minoan pots and then took off with my own individual designs. I still find making pots endlessly stimulating and opening up the kiln on a glaze firing is one of the most exciting feelings ever!
