I WORK WITH PORCELAIN CLAY, THROWN ON THE WHEEL, AND THEN DECORATED USING COLOURED ASH GLAZES. MY WORK IS INSPIRED BY ABSTRACT EXPRESSIONIST PAINTERS, AND I PAINT THE GLAZES WITH LARGE BRUSHES IN A RANDOM WAY SO THAT IN THE KILN THE GLAZES MELT TOGETHER GIVING SUBTLE COLOUR CHANGES. I HAVE TWO MAIN RANGES OF WORK, ONE OFF PIECES - VASES, PLATTERS, BOWLS, AND JUGS, AND DISHWASHER AND MICROWAVE PROOF TABLEWARE. IT IS IMPORTANT TO ME TO HAVE AN ELEMENT OF SURPRISE WHEN I OPEN THE KILN, SO NO TWO PIECES ARE EVER EXACTLY THE SAME.
