I came to live in Upton nearly eleven years ago. Before this I lived in Chichester where I was introduced to clay by joining an adult education class. It was love at first feel! I trianed as a phsiotherapist initially but having lived abroad and brought up two children I have had many different jobs. Taking part in Upton’s Open Studios has encouraged me to spend more time potting and taking part in other fairs such as Charnwood and Ceramics in Southwell. Being a member of Sherwood Forest Woodfiring Society has also led me to explore different clays, glazes and methods of firing – so lucky!


My Studio is half a double garage divided into a small room with my electric kiln and a sink and a bigger space with my wheel, work surfaces, shelving, materials for making glazes and a myriad of other bits and pieces that potters collect.


Latterly most of my work has been made with stoneware clay and reduction fired in a wood fired kiln. This allows the ash that is produced in the kiln to work its charm on the surfaces of the pots whether it be domestic ware or birdbaths.
