Spiral planter 2012
A potter, teacher and designer for 35years, I make stoneware planters and sculptures; wall pieces; boxes and pots in porcelain.
I have a professional interest in planting design and gardens and my own garden in Sale is open under the National Garden Scheme each year.
Containers for plants which relate in form, colour and texture to plants and their natural environment are a mainstay of my stoneware production.
Pots are made in series, sometimes evolving over months or years.
I have examples of my work in private and public collections worldwide.
Most of my work is sold through my exhibitions at my studio in Poplar Grove, Sale. Greater Manchester
