Porcelain, with its fine texture, purity and whiteness, allows me to explore relationships
between form and surface in a way that is more rewarding than with any other clay.
Wheel-thrown vessel forms offer infinite opportunities for subtle variations, but
my particular concern, while attempting to achieve harmony and balance in the work,
is to express my feelings for the natural world through the positive radiation of
light and colour. Skies, sea and landscapes, together with the multitude of flora,
are a constant source of wonder, inspiration and delight to me. Mountains, especially,
have fascinated me since first introduced to the English Lake District as a student
at Bath Academy of Art in the mid-1950s.
