People often ask why bonsai and bits, the simple answer is whilst I make bonsai pots, I also make pots for other types of plants, but I also love to make home wares, jewellery and multi media art. In short no business card can hold it all.
Working with clay is my first love and I have been at it for over 20 years, but I like to push is boundaries by using non traditional ceramic materials. I’m inspired by creators such as Brian and Wendy Freud, Jean-Baptise Monge and other fantasy artist. My pottery training looks towards both the Japanese master and the earliest example of pottery know to humanity.
My work is informed by all of this, but what brings me most joy as a potter is too create special one off items for people and to bring their ideas to reality.
