"Material qualities of clay and hand offering visual complexity through woodfiring and saltglazing"
My relationship with clay began in 1975. This creative medium immediately attracted me through the raw and direct tactile experience it offered. I initially worked in a pottery production studio, and then continued my training by studying ceramics full time at East Sydney Technical College.
Since 1980 I have been a full-time maker in my own studio, and a part-time teacher. During this time, I have taught and presented workshops in Australia, UK, Taiwan, France, Italy, Denmark, Japan, and the USA. I have also exhibited in Australia, UK, USA, UK, Netherlands, Japan, South Korea, Indonesia, Germany, France and Denmark. I am currently a lecturer at the National Art School Sydney, and I hold a PhD from the University of Wollongong.
