Welcome to my studio pottery gallery. Most of the work on display here represents a style that has been continuously evolving during the years we have had the Roundhouse and Capstan Gallery. Watching the constantly changing colour, texture and light of the Atlantic Ocean out of the gallery window made me wonder if I could achieve something of those light sensations from my glazes. Thus began years of experimentation to see if I could make the molecular reactions within my glazes behave more like pigments, and, more importantly, control them. The most recent pieces involve a carefully considered combination of brushed on or inlaid slips, engobes and glazes applied at various stages of production. Different combinations will create different atmospheres. Experiments are, of course, always ongoing; something I learnt from Ewen Henderson, my senior year tutor at Camberwell: to always look forward for new possibilities. Even if they fail, these experiments always pave the way for future successes.
