Where am I based? I moved from my native London to sunnier south-western France some twenty years ago. This much awaited change of scenery had a noticeable impact on my colour palette and the pared down simplicity of my style. What is my story? I started learning to throw at seventeen, and since then the fascination of taking a supple tactile material such as clay and finishing with an enduring and potentially functional object has not diminished. My studies began with a short apprenticeship with the renowned potter Emmanuel Cooper, followed by a degree in Ceramics and Ancient History which inspired my interest in ancient artefacts and design. I am originally from London but decided to relocate to South West France: “It was a life choice to live in a rural environment. I wanted to have more space for workshops and a wonderful place for my small son to run around." These past few years, I worked with Tate Museums on several occasions, most recently for Tate Britain's Barbara Hepworth exhibition. I has also worked with The Royal Academy shop as well as supplying many other shops & galleries. What is my inspiration? As child in the sixties, I grew up with the Finnish brand Arabia tableware, who were very contemporary. Form and colour are what drives my range of products: I want the designs to be still be relevant in twenty years time. Informed by William Morris’ s celebrated maxim “Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful,” my work constantly evolves with colour, form and functionality at its heart.
