The main inspiration for my work comes from old English country and Medieval pottery.
Simple objects that were used in day-to-day life. Designed with functionality in mind, I
want to make pieces that are comfortable and warming to use. The decoration I use is
simple, dark red slip lines that are banded around the pot. Or deep tonal glaze colours
that have a nice gradient to them.
Alongside my functional work I make rough texture clay square hand-built vases, and tea
pots, I play with the balance of the coarse texture and the geometric square shape. As
well, I make large thrown Korean and Japanese styles jars, I enjoy the present these large
pieces have and try to make them as eye catching as possible.
