Home: finding clay, making a life
“I am a Potter. I’ve been a potter for forty years and it’s still interesting.
I’ve won Awards, I’ve had spectacular kiln failures and still, it’s interesting.
My work has been taken around the world and people return years later to tell me.
“See what I have of yours!” they say, and I see work made when I was a different person in a different life.
But here, I persist, making and showing and exhibiting and exploring new ideas with the same joy that I felt when I was a child, trying to cook wet clay pulled from a river bank, in my Mum’s gas oven.
My pots do their job without me; they are a gift of communication from me to you.”
