My ceramic sculpture and water features are suitable for the garden, conservatory or indoors. Because of the organic nature of these forms they are at their best amongst plants, or perhaps beside water.
The design of the water features is the same as the sculptures; some are rounded pebble forms while others have a basin in the top. The basin shape is inspired by weathered moorland granite and will collect rainwater. The water features have a flexible pipe in the middle. Water is pumped from beneath and flows continually over the form. The flowing water both enhances the colour and adds movement.
Because the sculptures and water features are hollow in construction they are not very heavy and can be moved around, although they appear to be large, carved or textured boulders. This is a great advantage in the water features, making access to the pump easy.
The gallery shows sculptures and water features available at the time, other work can be seen on the examples page. I regularly update the gallery with new work and I am always happy to make pieces to order or take commissions. Email or phone to discuss your requirements.
I studied ceramics at The Central School of Art and Design, London. Since this time I have lectured in ceramics and continued to develop my own work. In over thirty years of working with clay I have exhibited widely and my work has been bought for private collections in the UK, America, Europe and the Middle East.
My inspiration comes from organic forms - pebbles, shells, fossils and plants. I love the sea and the shore, these are the greatest influences on my work. I am also fascinated by the spirals, labyrinths and other symbols carved into rock in prehistoric times.
