Some new smaller scale work....

Well its been cold enough to freeze a brass monkey's nuts off as they say (or dont) in this part of the UK! It's been so cold that the clay has regularly frozen in my shed. With more snow forecast for the Uk in February it's really tough to go and make work in my shed-cum-studio space. It has a little radiator and when the kiln's going it's toasty enough but....brrrrrrrrrr!

Ok, well I've been making 1 or 2 smaller pieces with an aim to scale up at a later date. I'm probably known best for doing copper mattes, but I enjoy textural and copper glazed Raku too. Well these new little forms are based on prehistoric flint tools, of the leaf shape variety. They're purely decorative and a move away from the vessel which I predominantly concentrate on- however dysfunctional!

I've enjoyed making these small pieces- and have tried a variety of finishes- here's a little peek of the new range- a Menhir.....


  1. Reminds me of pieces I'v seen from Easter Island. Simple and primal in all the good ways.

Making new pots 1

I'm busy in a making phase,
there's lots in the pipeline, but my main
focus is to get a decent body of work together. It's not always easy when the temperature in the work shop drops below zero! So it's been hard going, stopping the clay from freezing completely! it's toasty when the kiln's on mind you...

New work off to Old Chapel Gallery...

I just spent the weekend parcelling up pots ready for shipping out. Some are off to the Old Chapel Gallery. This is a new venue  for me but it's set in lovely Herefordshire. Now fingers crossed I sell some pots! Some of the pieces sent out are pictured below.

An Indian adventure

Well the dust has settled now and I can tell you about a lovely opportunity  to team up with Mumbai based company, CuroCarte. FoundedbyAnanya Birla, Curocarte aims to source work by artisans from around the world to showcase their talents in an online design/retail website. From what I gather it is mainly aimed at the emerging Indian market and all I can say is that I am "chuffed" with the link up.

I was visited by Pragya Awashthi whocame direct from Mumbai to my studio and workshop. I cannot praise Pragya enough and the founding principles of the company, the website is now live and you can judge for yourself.

I have to keep pinching myself that this actually just happened. Well back to reality, back to the workshed...
