Originally born in North Devon, I left for education and career. I first worked as a scientist and teacher before changing direction and attending Harrow School of Art.
Early work consisted of kitchen wares, all made in wood fired stoneware but after 10 years I rediscovered my fascination for ‘natural’ water and it has been a major interest ever since.
A Fellow of the Craft Potters Association of Great Britain; I am also a Full Member of the Devon Guild of Craftsmen and some years ago was invited to become an Academician of the South West Academy of Fine and Applied Arts.
In 2001 I was invited to become a national External Examiner in Higher Education for Art and Design.
I have, for many years, been invited to lecture and demonstrate my work to arts associations and colleges throughout the U.K. and overseas.
