Deborah has been making pots professionally since 1971. Her constant preoccupation is with 'throwing' and the endless variations, possibilities and pleasure to be had from manipulating wet clay both on and off the potter's wheel - combined of course with the alchemy of fire. Working primarily in salt glazed stoneware, Deborah produces a range of thrown, functional pots, their forms altered through a process of squaring and indentation, and decorated with a variety of applied slips.
She also makes thrown Raku fired pieces, a technique she teaches on her pottery courses at Nether Hall. Deborah is a member of the East Anglian Potters Association and a professional member of the Craft Potters Association.
