Pottery

My functional pots are canvasses for richly coloured glazes. I've been making pottery and teaching for fifty years, exhibiting around the country. I work mostly in stoneware clay and throw fine, functional pieces, fired to 1300ºC in a gas kiln, and I also hand build larger pieces. Shape is important, but experimenting with glaze materials and metal oxides, and firing at high temperatures is constantly fascinating. Coming from South Africa, where colours and pattern is vibrant, I like painting glazes, with free bold brush strokes, in layers which melt together, to produce unusual combinations, making each pot unique and keeping the excitement alive.
I trained and worked as an industrial designer, and engineering draftswomen before I came to England to study ceramics at the Royal College of Art. My first studio was a shared space in the East end of London and then I moved to Waterstock in the 70's to build a studio and have a family.
