Description

I find inspiration in the unpredictability of Raku firing, which involves fire, smoke and water, I love the anticipation of recovering a unique piece of art from the ashes.The unpredictability of the process makes Raku an art form truly on the edge of the potters control.


About

I am a potter living and working on the Isle of Wight. I studied at the Isle of Wight College and later at the Quay Arts Center under the tutelage of International potter Sue Paraskeva. All my work is slab built and I explore colour and form primarily using Raku ware. I am attracted by the spontaneity, colours and crackle effect, along with developing unique glazes and finishes. The unpredictability of the process makes Raku is an art form truly on the edge of the potters control.
