Based in the seaside town of Broadstairs, I create hand-crafted characterful and unique ceramics. I enjoy incorporating items such as driftwood and sea glass found on the glorious beaches of the Kent coast.

I use various methods such as throwing, coiling and slab building. They can be enjoyed in the home or garden. Each piece is first Bisque-fired to 950 degrees C in the kiln to set the clay. Once the piece is glazed and decorated it is then fired for a second time. I use either an electric kiln (powered by solar panels – when possible) or the Japanese gas-fired Raku technique.
