Teaching (Passing On)

Wedging lake clay







I like to pass on to my students my skills which enable them to progress in their own direction. There are few hard and fast rules, everyone does things in their own way, I endeavour to help students solve problems as we go.


Showing students the ‘wonderful inclusions'









Pottery is a way of life, creative, abscribing and demanding, but fun. I say, if you are not enjoying yourself stop and find out why, don’t press on regardless, life is to short.




Balling up






From basic throwing and hand building we progress to digging our own clay. Processing it so that it has a presence, you and it know exactly where it comes from. Glazing and Kiln building, wood and sawdust firing are all areas we can explore together.


Centering the clay










Here we go!
