ceramic designer-maker

I'm a practicing ceramist with a wide range of interests in making and materials. I'm currently engaged in PhD Research with Falmouth University and the Leach Pottery. My professional practice often focusses on the seasons and landscapes, as evidenced in the Seasons and Sea and Sky Collections. I also make traditional forms and glazes and call this Heritage Pottery.

The doctoral research is in collaboration with Falmouth University and the Leach Pottery, St Ives, looking at "Designing 21st Century Standard Ware: The Cultural Heritage of Leach and the Potential Applications of Digital Technologies".
