  • Ceramicist

Manor Oaks Studios

My work is heavily inspired by the natural landscapes in Northumberland and from my experiences in traveling in Africa and Australia. By using a combination of different building techniques, dry earthy glazes, reduction and oxidation firing; I try to recreate the harshness and weathering of rural landscapes. My interest in the traditional aboriginal and indigenous ethnic arts, culture and crafts can be found as an emerging theme within my work.
