Throwing skills are key to all my designs. My pots are thrown finely and retain the energy and life that I instil in the making process.
Since settling in Kilkenny, almost 30 years ago, my work has been influenced not only by the beautiful landscape but by other makers in the locality. I embrace the growing artisan community that shares in my aspiration to create a better world that escapes the pull of fast consumerism and delights in the pursuit of passion, creativity and the handmade.
