I have worked in my present studio at Yorkshire Artspace’s Persistence Works for over 20 years. Here I continue to explore possibilities of expressing my responses to the visual/ physical world via the plastic media of clay. I have made sculpture exploring the body language of individual and figure groups, I have made vessels, some coiled , some made with slabs of clay and others thrown. These have often been wood fired in Anagamma kilns, or alternatively fired in an electric kiln, some have been fired using the Raku process. Recently I have been coiling life size heads fired in electric kilns, mostly stoneware though I have now moved onto exploring the possibilities of earthenware clays. This includes more heads, jars slip painted plates, and slabbed forms.
