I studied sculpture at the Swansea College of Art before spending my working life in secondary education, teaching in Cheshire and on the Wirral.
Now retired I am beginning to develop a body of work that is inspired by the landscape of the Welsh and Shropshire countryside where I spend perhaps too much time walking the dogs and cycling.
The work is hand built, using large slabs of rough clay, textured whilst wet and then multi fired to build up a dry surface that reflects the texture and colours often found on ancient standing stones and old and forgotten buildings.
Occasionally, I make slipware platters and dishes which are freely painted with coloured slips and covered with a clear glaze. I am a Chairman of Wirral Potters with whom I frequently exhibit.
