Mixed media for landscapes, animals and abstract pictures. Hand built and thrown Pottery. I use Pyrography and Copper foil to create pictures in light and dark.

I create contemporary functional ceramics using traditional techniques. My pots are simplistic in form with a maximum of two glazes applied, often playing with the effect of the interaction between glazes.

I create functional stoneware and porcelain pieces, thrown on the potter's wheel. Decoration is something I play around with; if it makes me smile, I tend to go with it.

There is a cafe on site and ample parking.

I am inspired by the colour and movement in most rural scenes and particularly enjoy painting the colour and form of farm animals such as horses, sheep and cattle. Primarily interested in figurative work - I also enjoy a more abstract approach to my work I work mainly in Oils and Acrylics and enjoy making figurative ceramics.

My stoneware ceramic work draws inspiration from the British coastline and from my surrounding Fenland landscape. I construct using slab building techniques and my designs are incised into the clay by hand. I use tools made from found objects on my walks to mark make onto the clay, and my own slips to decorate.  My new work is informed by the many walks along rural farm droves here and the isolated Fenland farm buildings.

Weather permitting, over the Open Studio weekend we plan to do a pit firing each day (starting the first pit fire on the Friday) and Christine & Brian Withall will be demonstrating the raku process over the whole weekend.

Exhibiting from my pottery studio which is located on our working farm in Benwick, we are surrounded by the rural open Fenland landscape. On your visit you are welcome to walk the re-wilded meadow trail at the front of the house, where a path has been mowed to view the indigenous plants and insects.

This year I will be joined by Debbie Davis (www.debbieonthebrink.com) who will be showing her beautiful individual handbuilt ceramics, decorated in a variety of methods and demonstrating her love of drawing. She will also have her original artwork on display. Christine Withall will be exhibiting a selection of her stunning ceramics, including her African ladies and tactile pinch pots (www.sunspots.co.uk).  Brian Withall, will be exhibiting his exciting experiments in glasswork. Kerry Richardson's Keramika Creations will be on show; porcelain pieces incorporated into themed jewellery ranges, unique artworks and glass bubbles.  Lesley Adolphson (www.Lesleyadolphson.com) will be showing her striking  individual handmade silver jewellery. Andrea Van Kleef (Andrea.vankleef@gmail.com) will be here with her handwoven textile pieces, using natural fibres and with emphasis on texture, design and colour. All the artists joining me have their own Artist's page to view on this website for more information.

The water urn will be hot for you to help yourself to tea or coffee, with cold drinks and homemade cakes available too.  Plenty of outdoor seating should you wish to just come and watch the demonstrations.

Sea, Sky and lanscape inspire my work.

These richly textured  and atmospheric paintings are semi abstract and expressionistic.

Rather than mimic nature, I prefer to describe the qualities of a subjective experience.

Ceramics is an exciting and natural progression of my work. Hand-building and manipulating clay into objects inspired by nature’s forms and structures is an extension of my textured, atmospheric paintings. Latest work includes ceramic Wall Art, currently showcased in galleries around the UK.

I continue to explore further shapes and forms. Adapting to change has altered how I react to the clay and textures. Still loving the abstract form I am now experimenting with alternative clays. Raku still excites and surprises me, and I enjoy the shared experience that Raku firing gives.

Please take a look at a selection of my ceramic African ladies that are currently for sale on the online Peterborough Gift Shop here.

On the weekend of 9th-10th July I will be with Denise Brown at her studio (Grange Farm, Whittlesey, Benwick,  Cambridgeshire PE15 0XU)
I am bringing new work plus some favourites. Lots of fun and surprises also demonstrating Raku with Brian Withall.
