I live on the West Coast, surrounded by bush, in a house overlooking the ocean. I make pottery using local materials as much as possible. The clay used comes from local sources and my kiln is wood-fired using fuel grown on my own land.
Recently I have been making yarn bowls that are very popular with knitters and for gifts to knitters. They are fun to make with different shapes and sizes. Another recent addition is felting tools, ideal for wet felting.
I also make a range of domestic pots such as mugs and bowls. The yarn bowls and other pots are made with stoneware clay, a blend of several clays from local sources, and fired in a wood-fired kiln. the wood fuel comes from my own property, mostly pine trees planted many years ago.
Most of my work is sold here on the West Coast, in galleries in Greymouth and Reefton, and at markets from time to time. During summer at the Fox River Summer Markets every Sunday.
