I make stoneware pottery in my home studio. While the composition and high firing range of stoneware clay make it more costly to use, it is quite robust and is microwave, dishwasher and oven proof and therefore ideal for functional pieces.
Line and shape are central for me when making, so the decoration I use is fairly minimalist. All my pottery is thrown on the wheel, although lately I have experimented with altering the shape afterwards. My latest challenge has been making quite large bowls.
I am a member of the Oxfordshire Craft Guild and often exhibit with them. My work has been shown in several galleries including Bell Fine Art in Winchester and the Wiseman Gallery in Oxford. Jane Hainsworth, who exhibited with me for nearly a decade of Artweeks, will be showing her vibrant and colourful jewellery in her own home next door.
