Having been using terracotta earthenware for many years to make fairly rustic tableware, in the last couple of years I have turned to porcelain. I have been excited both by the challenge of throwing it and by its beautiful white surface calling out for decoration.
Our family holidays sailing on the west coast of Scotland have inspired me, the sea and skyscapes being particularly appealing, the photographs and drawings providing a rich resource for me to work from on return. Painting my observations on the porcelain pots has been absorbing and fun.
I have also become interested in making my own glazes and experimenting with ash glazes. I enjoy the fact that my pots are used and hopefully become like ‘friends' to their owners.
