Originating from Durham in the Northeast of England I have been working in Essex since 2003, I make functional, hand thrown, earthenware ceramics.  The forms I make are inspired by slipware pottery  rooted in an English tradition. The pots are decorated using slip trailed and incised decoration which is then glazed with a lead based glaze. Depending on the thickness of the slip and how it is applied a range of effects can be achieved. I like the materials and techniques I use to be visible to the people who use my pots and often let the warmth of the terracotta clay show either through the glaze or left bare, creating a textural contrast between the raw and glazed surfaces.
