Hello Everyone

I’ve just got back from my first few days in Portscatho. I was very pleased that the weather was on my side and the sun shone! Whilst in Portscatho I met a lot of new people. I got talking to one couple about where my clay comes from. I am proud to tell people how local It is, just down the road from St Agnes Beacon on the north Cornish coast. It is very versatile and lovely to throw, the Dobles family have been quarrying clay and blending it for the last three generations, so for me it’s so good to be using local clay and supporting local companies.

I hope everyone had a nice Easter break and enjoyed the few days of sunshine we had. I will be back in Portscatho on the 24th-26th April and I will have all my new pots with me. I am also taking part in the Roseland festival on the 4th May. I will be teaching hand building and a bit about the Cornish history of pottery. It would be lovely to see you there!


All my work is available to buy and I also take commissions if you have something in mind or I don’t have exactly what you’re looking for. I also now take cards, so you can still pop in and have a look even if you don’t have any cash on you.
