Maker's statement

I have developed my earthenware over the past three years, drawing inspiration from Staffordshire pots of the 18th century. The showcase exhibition with (JaniceTchalenko) for the Crafts Council (Gallery Shop) marked a turning point. From my tentative speculations a clear way forward emerged.
