Welcome to my website.
I began working with clay in 2001 , when my son was a baby, and daughter was at school.
I bought an old kickwheel, and set it up in the back of the shed, bought a bag of clay, and began. I liked the immediacy of working on the wheel, and it fitted in with grabbing moments while a small boy slept.
Much practise and experimentation has happened since then, and a change of venue from the back of the shed to a new studio and gallery space out in the front paddock. I also completed a distance Diploma in Ceramics through Otago Polytechnic.
In early 2019 a small trainkiln has taken shape (with much hard work and support from my husband) behind my studio, fulfilling a long held dream to woodfire. The small kiln will allow for more frequent firings and the ability to experiment without committing large amounts of work to the fire. After 2 firings I am excited to follow this new part of my clay journey and see where it leads.
