In 1977 I enrolled on a B.Ed degree course at, what was then, Nene College, Northampton. I chose to study pottery as one of my options and it was in these classes that my love of hand-building began.
At college I became known as ‘the sheep lady’ and enjoyed using the beauty of the countryside and some of its livestock as a focus. The work of Samuel Palmer was also inspirational.
My career as a teacher of children with special needs lasted 36 years. Now, in semi-retirement, I am fortunate to have found Claywirks and am able to rekindle my joy of moulding and shaping this wonderful natural material … clay.
