1978 Stroud College of Art; 1979 established workshop in Stroud making wood-fired functional slipware. Sid Tustin at Winchcombe pottery was a significant influence. Felt an affinity with the long tradition of English slipware that was rapidly disappearing. Slowly learnt to harness the benefits of a wood-fired kiln.
1991 Moved to Dorset, setting up new workshop and rebuilding enlarged kiln, but also working part-time in solicitors office.
2004 Moved to Devon and, following retirement, now concentrating on re-establishing pottery. Experimenting with locally dug clay, Devon having rich seams of good earthenware.”
