making – teaching – mentoring
I have been making pots since 1970 and in 2000 my journey with bone china began and after much testing I produced a body of extreme whiteness with excellent translucency. Bone china remains my focus today. Having always been fascinated by the translucency and whiteness of the body and the way light interacts with it, I am finally making the work I feel is a true expression of myself. My commitment is to the pursuit of excellence in my work, and in this the importance of the journey exceeds that of the destination.
