I make functional pots, coiled vessels and some sculptural pieces. Currently, with the pots, I am interested in a couple of directions; one that tries to exploit the movement of the wheel and the character of the clay, hoping to enhance these qualities with slip and glaze, and another that requires smooth surfaces for incised lines stained with iron and coated with slip.

For the last 8 years I have also been making some medium sized, coiled vessels that are inspired largely by African pottery and to a lesser extent Neolithic Chinese pots. Most of these are stained with iron oxide and coated with a clay and wood ash slip.
