I’m a ceramic artist based in West Sussex, where in my studio, I make a wide range of ceramics for home and the garden, both decorative and practical, including items made to order. My work is mainly recognized for the distinctive, quirky clock designs. Some of which appeared on a BBC2 programme ‘The Great Pottery Throw Down’. Over the years my clocks have developed and changed in terms of their designs and decoration from animals and floral to more contemporary patterns. I also incorporated stamps, engraving and carving into my work to give the pieces, dimension. Most of the stamps I make myself from old glass buttons and lace fabric.
Once fired, the bisqueware is modestly decorated with oxides and colourful glazes to emphasize the natural colour and texture of the clay. As well as slab building pieces, I love throwing on the pottery wheel which adds to the variation of my work. For both techniques, I use earthenware or stoneware clay depending on what the piece is intended for. To create a unique piece, please get in touch, as I am always happy to discuss bespoke commissions.
