I became ‘hooked’ on pottery when I was first introduced to clay at evening class. At the same time, as luck would have it, redundancy from my office lifestyle gave me the chance for a career change - fulfilling a dream of becoming a potter. This was enhanced by the wonderful opportunity of spending time at the Moorcroft Pottery tube-lining and painting a vase to my own design.
I live in beautiful Mid Wales and my present work is influenced by this environment. The local annual Royal Welsh Agricultural Show is the ideal venue to observe the farming community and trigger my imagination to create country themes of colourful characters and farm animals, each given a playful title.
From this has evolved the making ‘Little Characters’ which can be displayed individually or as a small group.
Each piece is hand built using earthenware clay and decorated with slips, under glazes and glazes
