I’ve been working in clay for three years and still have much to learn. I’m trying to push my boundaries in terms of form and scale, learning by my mistakes and profiting from happy accidents—after all it’s only a piece of clay. I find it fascinating and I’m having fun.
For me, clay is a tactile medium and my pots are made to be handled as well as seen. I hope that the pleasure I get from drawing up a form on the wheel flows through into the feel and appearance of the finished and fired pot.
Although I’m also starting to sculpt in clay, my efforts are currently only for my own enjoyment.
