Description

Share

I love working from my garden studio. I threw both the bowl on my potter’s wheel and sculpted on the baby sea turtle. The cracks in his shell were filled with copper, which gives it a green hue. He went into an initial firing (bisque) at 900 degrees C for a few days, then I applied a glossy white glaze to the outside and a soft sea green colour for inside the bowl. Then he went back into the kiln to be re-fired at 1270 degrees C, over another 3 days. 

Inspiration

One of my passions was diving with turtles, they are such intriguing creatures. Whenever I visited the hatcheries I always got a thrill from helping to guide the babies into the sea. 

The majority of my work reflects my joy of diving and the deep blue. My pottery captures the mysteries of the sea, I’ve always had a Saltwater Spirit and love living by the coast. I want my art to invite you to touch and explore the forms.

Seize that sense of other-worldliness, a watery feel of sunken treasure.   

Stoneware is extremely resilient.

This item is foodsafe

Wherever possible I use recycled packaging, it’s friendly to the environment and keeps the costs down. If this is a gift, please let me know and I will enclose a hand-written note with a personal message from you.
