About Me

I am a retired Primary School headteacher. I have set up a home studio and continue to develop my throwing skills. I like to alter, carve and incise my pieces, being more interested in shape, design and form, than colour and glaze finishes. I am currently working in smooth, white earthenware and would eventually love to move on to porcelain once I feel my skill level justifies the cost! I have a small electric kiln with digital controller, which has enabled me to eliminate glaze crazing issues. I have recently tried working in stoneware but am not yet convinced it is better for me than earthenware. I have also begun mixing my own glazes and will be happy once I have just 3 or 4 that are reliable.
