I am an art teacher who has worked as a  ceramicist for many years.  My early work reflected my African heritage exploring full, rounded forms which were burnished and smoke fired in response to traditional water pots.  A sense of place is an important consideration and current work includes an investigation into the demanding properties of porcelain and a colour palette that reflects the subtle hues of native flora and English landscapes. I'm a director of the studio and run general ceramics classes for all abilities.
