Describe your approach to teaching
I am passionate about ceramics, enabling others to find the joy and peace creativity gives.

What inspires your own work?
I employ original discarded objects, charged with meaning and concealed beauty as my starting point. Whether it is a mudlark’s Eighteenth Century clay pipe, a 1950s jelly mould or a piece of contemporary plastic packaging, I believe the inherent value held within the transience of our collective domestic ephemera still has an important role to play; as an aide memoire to our consumer habits and the impact upon our future.
