I studied at the Ruskin School of Fine Art,
Oxford and after graduating worked as an artist's assistant in Brussels
and Mumbai. I then tried a number of different jobs but really wanted
to find a craft. After attending an evening course with the wonderful
Graham Hudson, I decided to pursue a career as a potter. I was then
fortunate to be able to spend a year at Dove St Pottery with David
I am very excited to be joining Winchcombe Pottery, which will be an amazing place to develop my skills. There is so much history at Winchcombe, which in truth is quite intimidating for someone at such an early stage in their career, but I see it as an important challenge: to study it, to understand it, to respect it and to then learn to be confident and humble enough to make your small contribution to it all. I am looking forward to experiencing life as a production thrower and to be part of a team at a pottery. I am keen to learn about wood fired kilns, something I have no experience of, and to explore making slipware alongside the standard range. Up until now, my own work has tended to be quite minimal in design with quiet glazes, but I am going to take this year as an amazing opportunity to experiment and explore and to be open to picking up different techniques and languages within making pots, with no fixed ideas of where my work should go.
