My life as a potter began in Japan, where hand-made pots are commonly in use for food.
I loved Japanese food and became aware of how beautifully presented food is a delight for all the senses. I also realised how much hand made pots can contribute to the enjoyment of food.
Now that I make pots in England, my pots are made for the kind of food we eat here.
Oven to table ware features quite a lot - casseroles and oven dishes of various shapes and sizes. I also make large serving dishes, bowls and platters which make centre-piecesfor the table and give space for creative arrangements of food. Some of the slab dishes are influenced by pots I have seen in Japan, where I now exhibit regularly. I also make dinner plates, side plates, soup/cereal bowls and pasta bowls.
I am a keen cook and find inspiration in food for the work that I make. I have a blog - potsandfood.blogspot.com - which includes recipes, pots I like to use and other sources of inspiration for potters and cooks. I make recipe cards, sharing my favourite recipes, which give customers ideas of how they can use the pots which they buy.
