"I have been making work in clay for over twenty years. My work tends to be one- off or small batch production pieces and recently I have been focusing on commission based work. My work tends to explore using clay in unexpected ways whether it?s through using light or sound or just through creating unusual objects that are humorous and desirable!

I work in Liverpool and am part of the newly created Threshold Factory studio group at the CUC building and I have just been awarded a placement at Hope University as part of their Artists? Access into Art Colleges scheme. Last year I was commissioned by Leicetser County Council to make three interactive ceramic objects that could be used in schools for creative storytelling. The pieces had small wind up music boxes inside them and were made to look like mysterious space objects. I have had a number of other commissions including handmade lightshades for the Arts Council office in Brighton, a unique double spouted teapot for artists Darren Neave and John Cake who are using it in their gallery performances and pieces for the Artists Product range for Tate Modern and am currently in discussions with them for developing new work.

Although some of the work shown here was for commission or has already been sold, I am open to private commissions and especially Public Art based projects."
