Chris has been working in clay for over 25 years, making work for sale, exhibition and retail. He has taught in a variety of institutions including Central St Martins and University of Brighton as well as commissions from the Liverpool Biennial and consultant to Turner Prize winners, Assemble.

In the last few years he has set up and run Baltic Clay, an open access ceramics studio in Liverpool. This studio provides access to space and equipment for ceramic artists and classes for beginners.

His work explores the darkly playful side of childhood toys influenced by medieval illustrations, Japanese anime and ritual costume.
