Welcome, I am potter based in the north-east of Scotland, in the seaside town of Montrose, Angus.
Working in my garden studio since 2014, I make mainly tableware pottery using stoneware clay, my wheel is a manually powered original wooden Leach treadle wheel and my kiln is an old electric kiln formerly used in the Montrose Pottery. I have been selling my work locally through craft markets and exhibitions since 2016 and in local shops since 2018. I hope that from these pages you get an idea of the pottery I make, inspired by the landscape and colours around Montrose and Angus.
I've been developing my work over the years with a focus on refining my functional tableware range in terms of form as well as glaze combinations which are largely inspired by the surrounding Angus coastal landscape. I continue to learn and broaden my pottery knowledge with experience of alternative firing techniques etc. through workshops with the Scottish Potters Association and working with local pottery friends.
Covid restrictions permitting I'll be taking part in North East Open Studios (NEOS) again this year which runs from 11-19 September 2021, note I will be closed on Wednesday 15th September 2020.
At other times of the year you are welcome to visit me in the pottery, just get in touch to arrange an appointment.
