Fascinated by the Moon, inspired by Korean Moon Jars, compelled to coil clay and an explorer in the possibilities of painting with glaze and smoke

For the past 12 years I have been working on a series of pieces inspired by the Korean Moon Jar. This iconic spherical form is traditionally white however I explore other possibilities, for example techniques which would give a more ‘lunar’ surface using burnishing and smoke firing. I have developed a technique where I apply layers of glaze with a sponge to certain areas of the form and then following glaze firing, I smoke fire the form, with spectacular results. With this method, I use various colours which invoke the earth floating in space, swirling water and tree blossom.

I am a hand-builder, working mainly in white earthenware clay., using moulds to support larger forms.

I teach pottery - both one off workshops on specific subjects and termly courses in several venues.

I am a member of the Oxfordshire Craft Guild and West Forest Potters and regularly exhibiting with the groups. I am also a regular participant in Oxfordshire Artweeks, the Henley on Thames and the Caversham Arts Trails.
