Ceramics is amazing. You take a lump of clay and push or squeeze and smoosh it in various ways, and out comes a work of art or perhaps a simple pot.

I've been creating ceramic art for a year and a half and enjoy it immensely. When I'm not actually smooshing clay, I am often thinking of what I might do next.

I most enjoy working on the wheel, but I also do some handbuilding.

The glazing is the part that can fascinate or frustrate me. It seems I never know for sure what the final glazed product will look like. Perhaps the glaze ran or flaked or didn't quite cover the area I intended. So frustrating. Or maybe two glazes mixed together perfectly to form a third, unexpected colour. As I say, fascinating.

If you want something special, just let me know. I make custom almost-anything.

Thanks for looking.
