I work with clay to create tactile objects, intuitively-made, employing techniques that are unique to the hand-building processes. For me there is a strong sense of the familiar, my parents ran a studio pottery while I was growing up, which enables me to be free, playful and experimental in my making. Clay is such a sensory material imbued with history. I love the chance elements involved in making and the contradictions which arise in my work that can be both painstakingly slow and precise yet impulsive and gestural. 


The development of my work can be unorthodox and experimental; each piece is actively influenced by my interpretation and understanding of each making process or learnt technique. I enjoy the meditative, grounding processes of handling the clay, it’s a rhythmic physical act involving the senses. I feel my way with the material, pinching and pressing the surface, leaving visible fingertip traces, smoothing, polishing and re-working, digging in, rebuilding then eroding, forming objects that seem to have been unearthed from old civilisations or could have tumbled ashore, shaped by the pull of the elements.


Recent work includes a series of ceramic dogs for IOTA EDIT, slip decorated plates and fruit stands, for The Gallery, Malton and a selection of ‘still-life’ drawings. For these I use my own ceramic creations as the subject, styled with fruit and other objects. I reinterpret familiar scenes, hinting at a sense of place, evoking memories and exploring the transient nature of life concurrent with the longevity of cultural memory.
