Ceramics

I have studied ceramics since 1989 and majored in ceramics for my degree. I also studied mosaics and photography during my degree. I started working for RHACC in 1998, teaching Pottery for the Family for a number of years before moving on to teach adults only in evening classes in 2003.

I also work extensively in the community and run art workshops in community centres and care homes – sheltered, residential and extra care – teaching ceramics, mosaics, painting and other crafts. Together with the community in Butts Farm, Hanworth, we have made a number of public art works including a ceramic community tree, ceramic painted tiles, an interior ceramic wall and a dragonfly picnic table with ceramic tiles – and currently another hexagonal picnic table made with ceramic tiles.

In my own work, I used to make tall towers in ceramic, but now restrict myself to smaller objects, most of which have an amusing or a social comment. My work is usually in ceramics or a combination of ceramic and mosaic.

Recently I have set up a new business – Art Holidays Abroad – taking people on artistic holidays, currently either painting or mosaics, and combin ing my skills of teaching art with a previous career as a multilingual tour representative.
