I make sculptures and unusual ornaments for gardens using high-fired stoneware clay with matt glazes. My sculptures include portraits, and these can be commissioned.

I make sculpture and large-scale ornamental objects for gardens, such as birdbaths, planters, lanterns and sculptures. I have looked to art forms beyond traditional ceramics for inspiration, such as Indian architecture, Peruvian textiles, Victorian ironwork and medieval sculpture.

Some of the sculptures are imaginative representations from card games or chess while others are busts or portraits.

My work is made from Craft Crank stoneware or from semi-porcelain. Techniques include free hand modelling, slab building and some coiling. I decorate my work with impressed patterns or applied sprigs using my own hand-carved plaster blocks and sprig-moulds.

All the work is raw glazed and fired to 1260 degrees C in oxidation.

STUDIO: My studio is at the back of a Victorian house with two kilns in a conservatory outside.
