I have been a full time potter for nearly 30 years, mainly a repetition thrower, firing with gas, but in 2019 I fulfilled a long-held ambition and built a large wood-fired kiln. Now I feel I am at the beginning of a new and exciting journey.
I throw all my pots on the potters’ wheel. While they are all about function and, importantly, the enjoyment and ritual of use, I see each pot as an individual with its own idiosyncrasies to be embraced and admired.
I use local clay, stone dust and wood ash to decorate and glaze the pots, and I’m coppicing and storing the Willow growing all around my pottery for fuel to fire the kiln. Increasingly my pots are taking on the tones and hues of my surroundings, set in the rural calm of the Brecon Beacons National Park. My work is inextricably linked to where it is born.
No two pots are the same and all pieces shown here are unique. They are all in stock and available for immediate dispatch. If you are interested in other similar pots, or would like to order groups of bowls, mugs or plates, or place a special commission, please do get in touch.
Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.
Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
This is just a first step, so don't worry, there’ll be plenty of chances to discuss details before finalising a commission.
