I throw and turn my vessels on the wheel in my garden studio in Oxford. I use porcelain for its unique combination of delicacy and strength, and the wonderfully pure surface it provides for a glaze. My work is both functional and decorative; the bowls, cups, vases and jugs are thrown thinly and are often inspired by classic oriental ceramics, but they have a contemporary feel of their own. I hope they celebrate the subtle beauty in simplicity, elegance and harmony. I would like them to be a joyful communication between the maker and the user, who will enjoy the attention to every detail.
I relish exploring a palette of serene glaze colours and textures, a variety of surfaces to complement the simplicity of the forms. This is always an ongoing process; the thrill of experiment and discovery I find one of the most rewarding things in making.
