Describe your approach to teaching:
Clay is a unique & exciting material as it is full of possibilities: anyone can enjoy learning at whatever point in life they happen to be.

What inspires your own work?
I use wheel thrown & hand built pieces to explore the drama and depth of relief inspired by ornament in architecture, such as plaster ceilings, wrought iron & carved stone.
