Material: Ceramics | Location: North Buckinghamshire
I have always been a maker, and have drawn all my life. I aim to make functional ceramic objects that handle well and feel strong and economical in use. I combine potting with printmaking and am currently working on a series of landscapes and interiors as etchings and lithographs.

Drawing and lettering form an important part of my work. I use letters as decoration on bowls and jugs (especially for commissioned pieces), as well as paper cuts for printed graphics. I also make individual hand built and thrown objects of many kinds using stoneware, porcelain and high-fired earthenware.

Since 1975 I have lived and worked in Olney where I make bowls and jugs decorated with words using Albertus, Berthold Wolpe’s typeface, or freely cut letters of my own.
