Ceramics Inspired by Ancient Trees and Prehistoric Art

My work is inspired by looking at our landscape, from the strange and mystical stones and symbols of the prehistoric to the magical monsters and beasts of the Saxon age. I love to get out into the country to see and feel the connection of the stones with the land visiting mysterious prehistoric sites and looking at ancient art.





I enjoy seeking out Britain’s primeval trees. These fantastic forms and textures in nature lead me to an abstract world, which is where my work evolves from.

My work is also influenced by the amazing shapes of fossils and patterns of sea creatures and seaweed.
