Clay has been my chosen mode of artistic expression, fulfilling special requests and private commissions, it has led me along many and diverse paths of personal exploration and discovery. In the process this has enabled the acquisition of diverse skills and specialist skills such as mould making. Through my work, I have gained recognition internationally as an accomplished Potter, Ceramic Artist and Sculptress. I am also a qualified teacher.

I am probably most noted for my highly collectable pie funnels popular with collectors worldwide. These I make from my own moulds which I have produced from my original master clay models. With over forty exclusive handmade designs, I am described by ‘The Times’ Newspapers as  the ‘Prima-Donna of Piebirds ' Displayed in your home my Pie birds will be a true "conversation piece" set to become treasures and will continually increase in value.

A perfect gift for that "someone who has everything’ - friend or relative"
A truly sound investment.

My hand made pottery and ceramics have been featured in many publications and magazines such as 'Collect It', 'Art and Antiques', 'The Journal', ‘Piebirds Unlimited’ and more recently The Bonsai Potters Book printed in 6 different languages.

The  culmination of a lifetime’s ambition to set up my own pottery and sculpture studio, the last two years I have primarily been spent renovating a property. This has given me the opportunity to reflect, review and consolidate my achievements in terms of my craft and my art in order to determine the direction that my work should take.

For this purpose and for it’s future development and ease of use and clarity, I have chosen to present my body of work as four main distinct and core categories.

Sculptural Ceramics

Studio Pottery

Portrait Sculpture

Life size Sculpture

Artist’s Statement

I have sketched ever since I could hold a pencil. A shy quiet person, I have always been creative and assumed everyone could draw. It was Mr Paul Smith my art teacher at secondary school who first introduced me to clay. I have been working with it ever since.

Clay is a uniquely tactile and malleable material and my lifelong fascination with it lies primarily in its versatile properties and its universal functions. I left school to work for Pru Green for a couple of years at Alvingham Pottery near Louth where I first learnt to throw pottery on the wheel. I went on to work in Holland and Sheffield as a porcelain painter with Derek Stapaley at Studio 21 before returning to Grimsby.
