Nothing can be more satisfying than creating a work of art from a piece of wood, it can be very therapeutic and rewarding. It is also nice to have a challenge, when asked to create something to a customers specification. The items I have created vary from Wooden Pens to Salt and Pepper sets.
I try to use native woods from Scotland such as Oak,Sycamore, Beech, and again if requested
will use other types.

I make ceramics, usually in porcelain, for functional and decorative purposes. Recent work has been inspired by the shapes, colours and textures of vegetables and the renewed interest in home grown food. I often use natural forms directly by impressing patterns into the clay, smoke firing with relevant leaves and wedge moss, sand and other materials in the clay. I have also worked with community groups, in schools and hospitals with art, mainly clay.

Make Tea is a new range of contemporary porcelain tableware and tealights, glazed in vibrant colours and cut using traditional glassmaking techniques. This cutting gives the pieces a textured detail and the tealights a transparency which allows the internal coloured glaze to illuminate the exterior when lit.
