pots are wheel-thrown and well designed for domestic use.
I make up my own glazes from raw materials, producing soft greens, blues, oranges and tans, through to rich browns, dark velvet blues and blacks. The
pots are “biscuit” fired in an electric kiln and then glazed in a gas
kiln with a reduced atmosphere up to 1280ºC.
The stoneware range
consists mainly of mugs, jugs, plates, dishes, bowls, teapots, casseroles, vases
and garden pots.
My large lettered platters are individually designed
for commemorative occasions, such as birthdays, weddings, anniversaries and
have featured on wedding lists too.
porcelain pots include delicate cups, rice bowls,
trinket boxes, communion sets and
carved decorated plates. They
glazed with white or various shades of celadon, from the palest blue to olive green.
some years I have been making communion sets - chalice and paten and also
ciborium - for private
individuals, for churches and for a whole Diocese. They are varied in
design, from delicate simple porcelain to robust stoneware and some have
been lettered for individual requirements. Click here for
pots are in private collections
and churches countrywide
in Britain and also abroad: in America,
Australia, New Zealand, Albania, France,
Hong Kong, Switzerland and Germany.

I like to
think that everything I make is to last but I hope that the pots are
reasonable enough in price to use constantly and, in the event of a
breakage, can be replaced. My pots need to be used. Knowing that a
teapot was destined for display only, I made tea in it before it was sold -
it had at least lived once!
domestic stoneware range is suitable for oven, microwave and dishwasher.
from 31 December 2016 I have ceased trading.
