I choose to make the everyday forms of the tea set to tell a story of our lives and relationships. Historically tea sets were often never used but stayed on display, a reflection of the life and aspirations of the collector. My pots have come off their shelves, out of their cupboards and tell their own stories.
My work is always hand built and does not hide the marks which show how it was made. The material is not disguised either, I like to let the clay have a say in its form and texture and choose firings in which the actions of the flames make their own marks.
