I have been throwing pots for over 30 years, and the pieces I make have changed a great deal over the years.
My work is influenced by Japanese and Korean tradition, not so much in the specific forms but in notion of wabi-sabi; that perfection can be found in the inperfection of nature.
It is important to me that the forms I make should express the fluidity on the wet clay even once they are fired and also that they contain marks and impressions from the making process.
I also like their surfaces to be enhanced not only by the glaze application, but also by the flame path across them in the kiln.
I make a variety of different objects, but among my favourite things are large chargers, bowls, moon jars and urns. They are all simple shapes, but in them there is a search for pure, satisfying form.
