I am interested in pottery from past ages as well as contemporary work and I seek inspiration from both old and modern pots. I have made several trips to China and Japan to visit contemporary potters and see old pots in museums.
For several years I have exhibited my work at group ceramics exhibitions in the South of England, but most of my sales have been from my studio at annual Open Studio events and to visitors at other times.
I am currently Chairman of West Forest Potters, a local ceramics guild based around Reading and Maidenhead.
During the coronavirus lockdown in 2020 I embarked on two new ventures as part of a wider initiative to sustain activity and interaction in West Forest Potters. The first was to make a video of a salt and soda firing of my wood-fired kiln. A link to this video is provided below. The other venture was to start an occasional series of articles, addressed to potters, about some pieces from my collection of old pots. These articles can be found on this website under the tab ‘old pots’.
