I design and create one-off ceramic sculptures of people, some with humourous qualities, all of which capture the observed essence of human behaviour. I like to think that my sculptures are humourous and slightly whimsical and that all of my pieces are unique both in form and personality. My inspiration comes from observing life around me; I only make figures of happy people and people enjoying themselves. I do not seek anatomical perfection, preferring instead a stylised technique that I feel retains the expression of human behaviour. Each piece is hand made using earth-stone clay, glazed and fired in an electric kiln up to four times; the firing temperature is up to 1250c.
