"The work I make loosely falls into two main areas, functional pots and large pots. I enjoy the rhythm of making functional pots, working quickly in order to create small batches. It’s satisfying you see the shelves filling up with pots ready to fire. And the end desire is that people will want them for everyday use in their homes.
The larger pots are a different way of making. More challenging, I make these pots in 2 or 3 sections, which is therefore more risky. I like the process of throwing the sections, joining them and then throwing more. It also provides me with a large surface area to make bold and expressive marks.
My mark and pattern making is constantly evolving, I enjoy experimenting with different techniques, from scratching through slip to, currently, masking off areas. It’s these new techniques that make opening the fired kiln at the end really exciting."
