My work is based on my love of flora & fauna.
A passionate gardener with an extensive plant collection. I’m always collecting interesting seed heads & plant stems which I dry before impressing into clay. The slabs are then allowed to dry before decorating with slips & body stains.
Pieces are then fired before oxides & glazes are applied & pieces reglazed. I like to add mother of pearl or vintage buttons to the hanging pieces.
I make a range of pieces including wall hung tiles, pots, bowls, bird feeders & houses.
Due to the processes used, no two pieces at ever the same.
I am always trying out new ideas & love to see what unexpected surprises happen in the making, decorating & firing processes.
I love to do Craft markets & meeting the public & chatting about my work, answering questions about processes etc when asked.
I have work in galleries throughout the Midlands but images can also be found on my Facebook page.
