Around eight years ago we moved to beautiful Upper Wensleydale where I have been able to pursue my love of ceramics full-time.
I have been making pots and sculpture since I was very young. For a number of years I was working with clay almost everyday. After completing a summer of teaching pottery I followed a totally different career path.
During my working life I returned to the stress relieving, relaxing benefits of sculpting with clay many times.
My ideas come from what I experience everyday, running and walking in the fields and hills where we live.
All my work is hand-built individually or thrown on my antique wheel . Each piece is unique.
I am planning new workshops which will take place in a studio in Wensleydale. As soon as the arrangements are completed an update will be added here.
My Tall Tree pots are for sale in Yore Mill Gallery, Aysgarth. This gallery is in the beautiful setting next to the fantastic waterfalls. The gallery is run by Julie and Steve. They have a wide range of local art work as well as items from further afield.
See their Instagram page yoremillcraftshopgallery.
I have animal sculptures in this gallery which is a must for animal art lovers. It is located in the market town of Malton which is full of interesting shops and eateries.
I am now part of a local cooperative. We are open everyday in the beautiful village of Askrigg. Come in and view my ceramics and the wonderful handmade crafts of many local artists. We staff our own shop, we know our products and provide real customer service.
