With an Open Studio event at Coach House Studio in the New Forest
coming up fast - last two weekends in May - it is time to
get making. After that it is off to France for a hand building and
smoke fire course in June Sylph Baier's Moulin.

See more details on the Events page of my website!

I enjoyed making porcelain decorations,
stars and snowflakes, for the festive
season and the 'Mum bowls'
were well used over this Christmas.

Now I am thinking about what 2017 will bring....

After an inspiring visit to Finistere, Brittany
a new work, Menez-Hom (h31cm).
Named after the highest point in the area that
looks along all three peninsulas including the
Crozon in the middle where Lagatjar
stone alignments sit near the end.

I am exhibiting in Romsey Abbey and Rum's Eg 
for the month of August along with a fine selection 
of other ceramic and glass work. The title is 
'Dissolution and Revolution' 

Whilst wondering around this wonderful building I 
could not resist some of the details, hence the 
photo here. So much history and all those stories 
are food for reflection as this country lurches into 
a new and uncertain era.

Cumrewfell (h28cm)

Here is the latest big work to come
out of the smoke firing. Lots of my
work is inspired by the landscape I
walk in, including the fells in
Cumbria. This piece reminds me of
a recent visit, up Cumrew Fell
in April.

New for 2016 (h31cm).
This large hand built burnished vessel took
a long time to make but I am pleased with the result.
