|"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."
