Wednesday Evening Absolute Beginners Class

"I took my first pottery class at ASP 10 years ago, and never left! I completed the Otago Polytechnic Diploma of Ceramic Arts in 2009.

I was for many years a member of the ASP Committee.

I have always been drawn to figurative sculpture; as a child I haunted the White Elephant stalls at school fairs and always found useless treasures. I struggle to make practical, useful objects, but I do enjoy knowing that I can. What I want to make are objects that have some sort of resonance with the viewer. My latest work is a series of animal boxes that began as both a play on words like horsebox, dogbox etc, and as a flippant attempt to make containers with ornamental knobs".
