I make high-fired functional earthenware with vital form and simple, expressive decoration. I use dark green, honey-gold and cream as base colours, creating organic variation of colour by adding decorative texture.
I often spend months, even years experimenting with forms, balancing functionality and aesthetic, before finalising a shape. However, the incorporation of local materials alongside instinctive decoration introduces elements of unpredictability into the process, making each pot unique.
I take my inspiration from the landscape around me, mimicking Galloway's natural granite, it's varied alluvion plain and its distinctive colours.
