In the upstairs Showcase gallery from February to April 2019

I live in Bury St Edmunds and have been a potter for 12 years.  I work in stoneware therefore my work is fired at a high temperature and can be used in the freezer, oven, microwave, dishwasher and outside throughout the year. 

I love the calming influence of pottery.  There is something meditative about what I do.  Taking something basic (clay) and handmaking it into something useful and beautiful.

The ‘Face Pots’ I make are all unique, no two pots have the same style or name, each one is individual.  Most of my work is created on the potter’s wheel.

I teach evening classes at the West Suffolk College during term time.  I am never happier than when I have mud under my fingernails!
