Some examples of my ceramic work

Whilst I love playing with all sorts of different clays and experimenting with different glazes, every potter eventually finds their niche!

After a huge amount of frustration, failed glaze tests, kiln errors, cracked bases (the list goes on!) I have finally found a formula that works….

My niche, it turns out, are personalised dog and cat bowls!

Each bowl is made individually, to any size, and stamped with the name of your pet. The bowls are made from a flecked stoneware which is very hard wearing, totally waterproof and durable.  The interior and rim of each bowl is glazed  with a matt green/grey glaze.

 They are dishwasher safe and will not discolour.  (Please note that each bowl is an individual piece and therefore colour and final finish may vary just slightly from the examples shown).

If you would like to place an order,  please complete the form below or email:

My range of tableware is a stoneware/porcelain blend clay that fires to a very subtle off white.  I use either a sea green glaze or a combination of brush on glazes.   I have developed both these glazes from scratch, taking inspiration from the colours and light of the wonderful St Ives…

Some other pieces, some current, some from years gone by!!
