My partner Nic Collins and I use a clay body that we mix ourselves, consisting of clays sourced locally.
My pots are mainly thrown, sometimes altered, cut and put together again. I make small series of mugs, jugs, lidded jars, bowls and much more. As decoration, I use stamps, made from carved porcelain. The shapes on the stamps are based on nature, seeds leaf pattern, flowers, which are then pressed into the clay repeatedly.
When the clay is completely dry, the imprint is filled with different coloured glazes and then sometimes glazed over again.
I use simple glazes on the inside of pots and on the outside various coloured slips or no slips at all to fully utilise the effects of wood firing and soda glazing.
I like my pots to be inviting to touch and handle on a daily basis in the kitchen and around the house.
