A wide range of handpainted pottery made in situ. Patterns range from beautiful cobalt blues and copper greens to fun and unique animal and bird designs.

Love spoons, unusual kitchenware and I am adding wooden jewellery as from 01/01/2013.
I work with bone china clay combined with paper to create vessels which are each unique yet compliment each other as a series of works. Some vessels contain glass which is cast directly inside the piece - emulating liquid contained within the form. These works have a quiet, contemplative quality, particularly when viewed as groups or installations.
