A few years ago I took the plunge, retired from my successful nursing career and embarked on an MA in Ceramics which I completed in 2017 at UCLan Preston. I have always dabbled with pottery, attending evening classes, collecting pots from my travels, going to exhibitions and generally trying to be creative. I'd always wanted to focus and be good at one thing - the MA certainly enabled me to do this.
My main inspiration comes from my passion for fabrics, their texture and flow, and I try to emulate this in my pieces in both form and surface texture with my use of glazes. I have developed all my own stoneware glazes through lots of testing of recipes and adjusting oxides.
I now work from home and share some studio space in Manchester, hand-building using stoneware and porcelain. Each piece I make is individual although I do enjoy making sets of pieces. I hope they are good to look at, touch and use.
I do sell my work and will be updating my shop page or if there is anything you would like me to make I would be happy to chat - either way please contact me via the contact page.
