IDEAS FROM EVERYWHERE, CHINA AND AMSTERDAM
Travel broadens the mind, and it's a good source of ideas for artists. Not only the grand sights but also the humble ones. In Amsterdam last December, during a mild spell, we wandered round the canals in the early morning, in a wonderfully low, pearly light...

Introduction

I make simple, elegant pottery for modern interiors. I trained at the Rodmell Pottery, Sussex and at Harrow (BA Ceramics, University of Westminster). I work full time from my studio in St Albans and exhibit throughout the UK. I am one of the few ceramists in Britain using the difficult medium of tin glaze, which requires rapid painting on the unfired glaze. Tin-glazed earthenware has a long pedigree, including Italian maiolica, but I make a contemporary interpretation of it.  My historical sources include abstract expressionism and 1950s textiles. I won the St Albans Museums Trust Prize in 2013 for ceramics shown at UH Galleries. I am researching the life and times of Dora Billington, the influential 20th century potter who taught many leading ceramists at the Central School of Arts and Crafts.
