Ceramics is a relatively new venture for me, but one which I find fascinating and absorbing.

My forms are all based on the natural world, especially the amazing shapes of seeds and microscopic plants and animals. 

The first four images show some of the results of my recent 'Smoke Firing', which produces amazing and unexpected colours and patterns. See my Blog page to find out how I did it.
