My collection of contemporary stoneware is thrown on the potter’s wheel. An emphasis on simplicity of form allows the decoration to become the focus of each pot. Drawing is integral to my practice and loose, abstract mark making is developed into a catalogue of designs. These are translated onto the surface of the clay using slips, and layers of colour are gradually built up. Crisp stencils and mono-prints contrast with fluid brushstrokes and sgraffito marks, adding depth and subtly to the collection.
