I’ve had my own little pottery studio for
the past 6 years, teaching myself to make tableware and occasionally sculptural pieces. Adopting an autodidactic approach to pottery
has allowed me to experiment, try out techniques that interest me and make all the right mistakes in the process, which has led me to develop a unique and slightly offbeat approach to clay, glazes and
their properties.
