I use clay to illustrate a world in which small acts of everyday life revel in their full
importance, defined in bold composition and subtle detail, which results in a rich
storytelling that is both quirky, sombre and humorous.

The celebration of domestic rituals has been a central theme in the narratives, with
more recent work encompassing folk sayings.

Intricate narrative illustrations are etched with needles on to raw porcelain and
stoneware, before stains, glazes and decals are fired on.

Forms range from framed panels and vessels to books with moveable pages, folding
screens and clocks.
