Contemporary domestic ceramics inspired by Scandinavian winter landscapes
“My work has been widely exhibited in the UK and abroad. Galleries and have included Liberty (London), Gump’s (San Francisco), Majlis Gallery (Dubai) , Haa Gamle Prestegaard (Stavanger, Norway) as well as Janet Bell Gallery in Anglesey, New brewery Arts in Cirencester and the Royal Exchange Theatre in Manchester.
The current collection of work draws inspiration from memories of snow covered landscapes in Norway. When heavy snow covers trees, rocks, paths and architecture; sharp edges become soft and everyday shapes may become unrecognisable. I try to bring the same feel to my work by softly distorting pieces made on the potter’s wheel and giving them bulges and indentations. The colour range is reflecting the many tones of snow, ice and winter skies.”
I work and deliver pottery classes from my garden studio in Heaton chapel, Stockport.
