In my work I explore the relationships between the processes that make the piece and the effects they create, as well as the relationship between the pot and the user.

I make solely wheel thrown, high fired, porcelain and stoneware objects with a functional purpose.

My aesthetic ideas are grounded in the traditions of British studio pottery, which takes its inspiration of aesthetic idiom from Japanese culture.

In my pieces I attempt to attain a balance between my aesthetic purpose; to display and manipulate the properties of each stage of the creative process into a balanced confident piece, and my personal belief that the beauty of a pot is as much in its visual presence as it is in how it functions.

The communication between person and pot though initially always visual; the tactile responses stimulated by its use are where a truer understanding and appreciation of the form and personality of the pot are found.
