In my practice, I incorporate texture and narrative within my work, often creating very simple forms that carry the intended message. I seek to combine my professional interests with my ceramics, developing a narrative about the people, geology and history of south Wales, in individual vessels, or as combined installations.

I am currently lucky to have been awarded a Graduate Workshop for a year at Fireworks Clay Studios in Cardiff, and I am constructing my own workshop in Abergavenny.
