I was introduced to clay in my mid twenties, and for a long time it had to fit in with work, and then family and then both. I did a City &Guilds, which was invaluable, but there was not much time for pottery. When I retired I could return to it, with time to explore and experiment.
My pots are stoneware, which is strong and hard-wearing, but attractive too. I am interested in shape and colour, basing much of my work on medieval pottery. I have done hundreds of glaze tests, and am still searching for that irresistible glaze. I fire in an electric kiln, which isn't the best for exciting results, but I get interesting effects from overlapping glazes.
