A soda glaze & Shino potter and lecturer for 40 years. Producing high-temperature soda glaze functional ware, in the broadest sense, raw glazing using slip and a pallet of firing schedules gives the work its rich colour and texture. In recent years I have developed a range of work ’Soda Shino’ inspired by Mino pots of Japan. I use Shino glazes fired alongside the slipware pots in the soda kiln.
My work is represented in many galleries, museums and private collections worldwide. Founder and Chair of Adopt a Potter Charitable Trust and Clay College Stoke. Awarded MBE 2016
