This is just a small selection of some of the bowls and platters I have made. Mostly I work on the wheel because I love making bowls, but from time to time I do some hand building too.
When I was at Art School, ceramics was a compulsory subject, & I was a reluctant student. It was one of the greatest and most unexpected delights therefore, to discover that I just love clay, and fire, and all the fantastic things that can happen in a kiln. Also because of my interest in Buddhism, I often joke that pottery, especially wheel work is the ultimate in Mindfulness practice, & non attachment, since one distracted moment, or some other unforeseen happening at any stage so easily occurs and the work is lost forever. A sense of humour is an essential requirement. I am currently experimenting with ways to draw from my paintings, & re create those images on plates & bowls.
Following art school, I continued to learn ceramics and wheel throwing with KwiRak Choung for five years at Wlloughby Workshop Art Centre. In 2016 I returned to Northern Beaches Ceramics and
I am currently an Open Studio student there, mentored by Chris James and many other very talented teachers and colleagues.
