An active interest with clay has kept me involved with the medium on many levels from formative years. Retired from formal teaching, I now take time to indulge myself in my home studio, making individuals items, commissions, pieces for exhibition or competition as well as Asian-inspired tea ware. Surfaces on my work vary according to the firing methods and fuels – gas, electric and wood-fire are used. Clay bodies are often an artist’s blend and each piece is an individual.
