"Living and working in a converted granite 1836 Wesleyan chapel, I feel I am steeped in the beauty of the Cornish landscape and its history.

Colours are found in the changing fields seen from my window, hedgerows of gorse and hawthorn, wild flowers, sky and sea. Patterns are abstracted from granite walls, field lines, cliff and rock strata and sea and surf lines. I am constantly inspired and energised by my surroundings.

I use stoneware clay from north coast St Agnes, adding oxides and other clays, which are dug from various Cornish locations, to make different batches of coloured clay. The pots are individually hand built, creating an organic asymmetrical shape, which must spring from the base to create a continuous curve. The rims are pinched and uneven, resembling slate edges on the chapel roof."
