Following my studies at Loughborough College of Art, the first pots I made to sell were terracotta planters. Eventually, I changed to white earthenware domestic pottery before working with the stoneware I currently use.
Functionality has always been an important aspect of my intentions but a pot's obvious utility is now less of a necessity for me. 
The decay or weathering of surfaces and textures, be they in natural features such as rock formations or manmade creations like brick or concrete constructions, interest me. The work of abstract expressionist painters, particularly Franz Kline, also inspire me.
I'm attracted to the spontaneous, occasionally unintentional and imperfect results of the movement and fashioning of clay, colour and glaze, yet all within a considered 'plan'.
