My love of ceramics began many years when I first attended evening classes. However, my long career in healthcare, which was far removed from working with clay, meant Pottery has always been a hobby.
Although I have not had any formal training in ceramics, I have been lucky enough to develop my skills and learn new techniques by attending evening classes and multiple workshops in the UK and abroad.
These have been supplemented by meeting lots of amazing potters at the various classes and workshops.
I now have the luxury of being able to experiment with my work and explore different concepts, designs and styles. I like hand building and using texture in my work and am starting to make more sculptured pieces and experimenting with “wacky cats”.
I have been a member of CCGG for many years and see this as a great way of keeping up to date and learning new techniques.
