Snail Pottery is participating in ESC Artists Stamford Arts Centre Summer Artists Market in the Ballroom on 24 June 2018
I studied at Ipswich School of Art and Lowestoft College of Further Education in the 1970’s, then worked as a freelance ceramics designer for various potteries in Hampshire during the 1980’s.
I was an Art and Design technician and part time lecturer at Portsmouth School of Art (now University of Portsmouth) during the 1990’s.
I have always had a fascination of the sea, its moods and movement, so I try very hard to get a sense of movement in my work. Long term influences have included Arabic writing, Celtic knotwork designs and that all time staple, art Nouveau.
I mostly work in stoneware but am wrestling with porcelain. The translucent quality gives so many more possibilities. Glazes are matt or satin, occasionally using lustres.
Sizes vary between 4cm to 35cm in height and prices range from £25 to over £600.
