Artist Statement

My work is usually thrown using a new “porcelain white” stoneware which is decorated using slips and underglaze stains. This new clay gives an excellent colour response; colours being strong and vibrant. “The use of brushed and poured slips is a recent development and expands on a more controlled use of line and mark making which was characteristic of previous work. A consistent theme in my work is a passion for colour and the balance and rhythm of line and mark. “I love drawing and use unglazed porcelain or porcelain-slipped stoneware as a way of capturing this.”
