Wildlife and nature have always been an important part of my life and my inspiration to reflect the beauty of the natural world in clay. My ceramics are handmade using hand building and sculpting techniques, so no two pieces are exactly the same.

I use stoneware glazes which are fired to 1270c making my ceramics suitable for outdoors. Precious metal lustres are then applied over the fired glaze and go through a final lustre firing which produces a unique colour and iridescent sparkle to each piece. I create my ceramics in my studio in Hayfield, set amongst the stunning landscape of the High Peak which always continues to be an inspiration to me.
