We both trained and received distinctions at Level 2 & 3, City and Guilds in Ceramics after retirement, and are enthusiastic amateur potters.
We thoroughly enjoy what we do, and are always looking out for new and inspiring ideas.
I am inspired by the unusual, slightly weird, and sometimes surreal, from artists such as MC Escher, and Salvador Dali, plus my own mathematical and computing background. Most of my items are 'one-offs' and extend from small dowsing pendulums, through sculptured representations of illusory art, to a scale model of the solar system.
Naturally, along the way I have pinched, slabbed, carved and thrown a variety of 'pots' that would be classed as 'normal', but these have all been transformed by interesting and 'stand-out' glazes into something designed to catch your eye.
I enjoy the flexibility of hand-building, carving and sgraffito, often using Celtic designs and elements of the Natural World.
