Seren Arian Exhibition

I have recently exhibited in 'Seren Arian' a Christmas exhibition at Craft In The Bay, Cardiff. This was a great opportunity to display my tableware range alongside other designer makers, who use not only ceramic materials, but textiles, wood and metal.

Currently I am exploring possibilities of using a new clay body, in order to develop my surface and glaze palette. I will be uploading images of these new developments soon, as they emerge from the kiln.

Taking Shape Exhibition

I am exhibiting at the Model House Craft and Design Centre in Llantrisant, South Wales from 10th September to 21st October 2009. The profile show, 'Taking Shape', is a recent collection of ceramic tableware.

Combining tactile surface qualities with coloured glaze developments, my work is taking on a new direction, whilst still maintaining an interest in precision, through industrial-based techniques.
