JANUARY 2018 - Still working from South Molton but New Studio due to be bult this month. Now a member of Westcountry Potters

OCTOBER 2017 - Those who know me, you will know that for 2 years I have been trying to relocate to North Devon. Well it finally happened and from the begining of September 2017 my wife and I now live in Lynbridge, North Devon and can honestly say it fantastic.

I'm in the process of building my new studio situated close to the cottage and hope to have it completed in January and be up and running in February 2018 (fingers crossed).

So at the moment I have set up a studio just outside South Molton at the workshop of my dear friend Marek who sadly passed-away last year. I'd like to thank Pauline his wife for allowing me to use the workshop and for making me so welcome.

At the moment I'm working on an order for the 'Porta Dextra Gallery', back stock of my range of raku animals ready for hopefully more orders from current stockist, a new range of smaller items for local gallaries and retailers that have shown interest in my work. Plus I am continue to create my latest 'black' range of highly carved raku 'arty' pieces that I exhibited for the first time at 'Art in Clay (Hatfield) 2017'.

About me and my work

I previously worked from my studio in Bledlow Ridge Buckinghamshire and also worked very closely with The Phonoix Studio at Towesey, Oxon www.phoenixstudio.co.uk were I teach and run raku workshops, these will continue, so keep an eye out for the dates for the 2018 workshops).

As you may have guessed my passion is Ceramics and especially the hand building techniques such as ‘coiling’ and ‘slab building’ which I than carve back at the leather dry clay stage. I am intrigued by the Raku firing technique although Stoneware firing is a also a strong process in the finishing technique of my work. I like to classify myself as a Ceramicist rather than a Potter as I tend to think of a potter as artist that competently uses the wheel to produce functional work.

I always find it hard to describe my work as it varies so much and takes it insperation from so many areas and influiences and these change regularly, one thing for sure is that I have more ideas in my head than I’m ever going to be able to make.

As well a exhibiting locally and nationally I also teach and run workshops for Raku Firing and handbuilding. As I build my own Raku kilns I can now offer this as a service, so if you are interested please get in contact.

I have been lucky to make some great friends through ceramics along the way and have to thank them all for enriching my life and saving me from complete madness.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

This website has been created to showcase all of my work and also consolodates  my old websites - www.pots-n-things.co.uk, www.wishingstones.com and www.rakuman.co.uk and hope it makes it easier to view and understand my work.

On a commercial level
