“My arts practice has been heavily influenced by the ceramic traditions of Japan, Korea and China. I was a child of the new wave studio ceramic era of the late 1970s and early 1980s. As such, ceramic artist Milton Moon and the practice and philosophies of Bernard Leach and Shoji Hamada are evident, not only in my work, but in my approach to my arts practice.
My functional ware range is unpretentious and continues to reflect the simple lines and decoration of this period. Consideration is given to the end use and user. Each piece is designed and created for comfort and pleasure of use, while remaining aesthetically quiet and to contribute to the satisfaction of eating. My current inspirations are diverse and range from the natural environment and climate change, to the inner environment of the self.”
