"My aim is simply to be good at what I design and make, so that people can appreciate and enjoy my work."

"My influences are largely architectural in nature, and include natural and organic forms that harmoniously combine tension, balance and proportion. I do not use devises of mass production in my work. I consider the qualities imparted only by the' handmade' object of the most importance, this way each piece that I create embodies a unique and personal factor."

"For the past few years I have been experimenting with different glazes. Earthenware, stoneware, triaxal blend and multiple glazes. I have also been exploring different ways in spraying my pieces, using a spray gun and also a detail spray gun so that I can achieve the effect that I want in my work. I spray one glaze at a time, in some places one on top of another. For me, using a spray gun and layering different colours gives that tactile feel to the piece, form."
