I began to pot, 45 years ago in New Zealand. However it was only 6 years ago that I had the time to begin again. With a lifetime of ideas, awaiting their creation, I feel I am forever developing and still experimenting.
The Chicken Run, is where I produce an eclectic mix of both wheel-thrown and hand-built work. Sometimes a combination of both.
Stoneware clay will take the heat of the oven and the extreme weather outside. I love throwing open forms, both functional and aesthetic, from simply thrown bowls to those with expressive lips; jugs with ‘hand’-les ;or a seated animal on the rim. Carefully chosen glazes are the finishing touch.
Unique, handbuilt stoneware, include windchimes, animals on stacking stones and garden birds on bird baths made of coils.
Quirky animals especially hares come alive and pose for me.
Summertime is Raku time - the local clay a joy to use – firing Raku is instantaneous and pure chemistry in action. Animals and birds appear with the natural blackening of the unglazed work, cracking and lustre of glazes.
I am open to commissions and challenges.
