Describe your approach to teaching
My desire to share information, diverse knowledge and skills are the foundation of my teaching. I currently teach at City Lit and Morley College and previously at Camberwell School of Art and Harrow, University of Westminster

What inspires your own work?
Space, volume and Architecture…My work is about a search for an unconventional balance. I construct and reconstruct forms to create objects with an unusual character and a quality that questions our concept and ideas. Each pot has its own unique personality whilst belonging to a family of pots that share similar qualities.
