My work has ranged from explorations of classic domestic thrown forms to the sculptural interpretation of mythical creatures, with reference to cultural myths and legends.

I am heavily influenced by eastern and African traditions and forms from typical pots to buildings and decorated surfaces, as well as the Roman and medieval pots evidenced in domestic ware of the period.

More recently I am developing an understanding of porcelain as a thrown and sculpted media.

I use limited glazes preferring to use oxides to reveal form and to emphasise the character of the pot or sculpture.
