Describe your approach to teaching

My approach to teaching involves taking elements from the ceramic industry and adapting them to a studio environment suitable for the craft person and small-scale production.

What inspires your own work? 

Although process-led, an interest in architectural details and the natural world combined with a fascination with translucency and colour, provide the starting points for my work. The inherent qualities of bone china doing the rest.
