Animals, birds and figures are individually handbuilt in a variety of stoneware clays, biscuit-fired and then glazed thinly or finished with various stains and oxides before being fired to 1230 degrees C in an electric kiln.
I enjoy the challenge of manipulating the clay into the desired form, be it a dodo standing precariously on two legs or a large squat toad firmly resting on its belly. Texture is of great importance in my work.
I take an active part in Anglian Potters' exhibitions. Galleries which sell my work include Steam Gallery, Beer, Devon and Art in the Heart, Bridge St., Peterborough.
