My work with clay is an exploration of ideas normally starting with the form of the 'vessel' but reflecting landscapes and working with the natural characteristics of the earth. The work is concerned purely with aethetics and not intended to be functional.


I explore the nature of the material accentuating the marks and textures that appear in the clay by the natural way of working the medium rather than imposing them on the clay.

A particular inspiration for me are the natural characteristics of the earth including the strata in cliffs and rock outcrops such as found on Dartmoor, coastlines and other landscapes - formed by the force of nature rather than created by humans.

My initial inspiration to get involved with clay was the potter Mike Vickery from Taunton and his landscape work with clay.

Embracing the Japanese concept of 'wabi-sabi' teaches the acceptance of imperfection and the appreciation of the beauty in that imperfection.

The natural act of decaying is also a fascinating aspect, and embues what you see with a sense of its history.
