Artists Biography
I live near to Carmarthen Bay, a fascinating conjunction of three rivers where the boundaries of land, sky and sea meet and move in constantly changing patterns. Walking on the beach as often as I can, I am drawn to random objects washed up on the shore.

My work aims to question this. It is always hand-built and does not hide the marks which show how it was made. The material is not disguised either, I like to let the clay have a say in its form and texture and choose firings in which the actions of the flames make their own marks.

I find these visually fascinating, they have been sculpted and painted by the elements but also intriguing, is the story of how they got there.
