"I've been very fortunate in being able to both teach and develop a workshop practice at home - in reality, a back-garden lean-to and a kiln shed! For me, the confluence of urban "wild" life in St Werburghs - the latter brought into the city via a green corridor to the City Farm - has had much to do with functional 'slipware' pottery that I make.  Wheel-thrown terracotta is given surface colour and decoration via what is do-able by me with liquid clays otherwise called clips.  Glazes then need to have a see-through property that can enhance that fluidity and movement.  I do enjoy all the messy 'husbandry' of the pottery process; recycling and mixing clays and making slips and glazes from raw materials - to my own recipes.  My aim - through these things - is to set off a 'companionable quality'  in the finished pieces!"
