'By varying the thickness of the walls, an exciting new world has emerged in the profile of the cut edge, combined with a suggestion of flow and movement from the resultant throwing lines. This has led to a distinctive body of work conveying human movement, dance, attitudes and emotions in the spirit of the 20th Century Futurists and providing resilient tableware along the way. Although people or trees may be suggested in the cut edge and swirling waves in the evolving form, each piece can elicit various interpretations, memories or associations personal to the viewer. Use of these malleable and responsive materials is enabling the artist to offer a lively and novel interpretation of human movement and organic growth through space and time.
'I established my wheel-throwing skills by dedicating endless hours in the garage of our house in Oklahoma soon after moving from England in 1979. For ten years I made and sold tableware in Oklahoma and later in Norway, returning to England in 1993. I then developed two lines of decorated tableware and established a studio in my basement in Dorking.
