All about Urns....

Whilst I probably focus more on sculptural work and hand built forms these days, I do like to return to the wheel "to brush up" occasionally. And whilst I am no great shakes as a traditional Potter- I find it immensely enjoyable and theraputic. 

I throw on an old fashioned style kick wheel, it's not particularly old in that sense, but was handed down by my Mother and Brother who both started Pottery making back in the '70s. It lay Mothballed- along with an old Olympic kiln until I got the Pottery bug in the '90's. 

Anyway, I mainly throw bowls and dishes, but occasionally I take the plunge and attempt something different. I especially like making Urns- or "Churns" - little angular pots with coiled attached lugs. They have  a vaguely ancient feel- being loosely based on Bronze and Iron  age vessels.

Ok- here a few of my old favourites anyway...


  1. pretty urn jars, are they marble?

  2. hello alas no they are Raku kiln fired Ceramics. But thanks.

GQ Magazine India

Just been told that one of my pots is featured in an article in GQ magazine India.
It gets more and more bizarre every day! It took me a while to work out what the mag actually was...stands for Gentlemen's Quarterly I think? Nice.

Meanwhile, production has ground to a halt, whilst I paint and generally clean out the workshed. Paranoid about the hazards of clay dust, I decided for health and safety reasons, it was high time.
Can't wait to get it finished and back to making,

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...
