I started my love affair with clay several years ago after attending an adult learning class one evening a week.

 

I am interested in form and enjoy adding bits of clay to the main body.  I also enjoy smoke firing and raku, watching the flames play with a piece.  My other interests are clothing and architecture and I particularly like Gaudi.

 

I find clay an amazing medium and it is only limited by the imagination.  If you can imagine it you can make it.  I have enjoyed passing on the techniques to others in a learning environment and continue to explore the versatility clay allows me.
