Fed up with commuting and my blackberry ...
I quit the City in January 2013. I don't use the word 'retired' but instead I swapped the stressful life of working in finance for the joy of creating ceramics.
I originally learnt to throw pots at school, some 40 years ago, and always knew I would return to it someday. Throwing on a wheel is my passion, using both stoneware and porcelain claybodies. I am always experimenting with slips and glazes within the restrictions imposed by having an electric kiln.
I sell mainly at local craft sales and from the dining room at home, so if you are ever in Constable Country, feel free to drop in.
