Nature and the countryside has always been a source of inspiration to my work. Using elements of the ever changing shapes and textures within the hedge row, to create impressions onto the clay surface, accentuated with washes of oxide or glaze, continues to absorb my method of working.
At the same time, local wildlife and in particular Hares and Foxes have been a particular interest. I use earthenware, porcelain and earthstone crank clays to create a range of work including Hare Figurines and Hare & Fox Plaques.
Each piece I make is individual and unique. I love to model the features and stance of each animal I make. The Hare Figurines look interesting individually and equally as a pair or in small groups.
I have always enjoyed working with clay. I studied Ceramics at Howard Gardens, Cardiff in the early 90s and from there went on to Teaching Art for 17 years.
Over the years, my work has developed as I continue to explore and experiment with ideas that includes a range of techniques.
