My ceramic world came to life when I took a stand at Potfest in the Pens in August 2008. Prior to that, ceramics had been at best an occasional hobby.

​Since then, I exhibited at Potfest each year until Covid and have gradually become involved in other local venues. In 2014 I made my first submissions to The Lake Artists Society’s annual exhibition and was pleased to have both my pieces accepted. I then joined Green Door Artists in Kendal and through them have exhibited at Farfield Mill, Brockhole, Kendal Museum and Upfront.

​My only formal training in ceramics has been a number of one-day and one-week courses run by Gordon Cooke of Sale, Manchester, but I have found that you can still make progress providing you are willing to go on getting it wrong. No pot is ever the perfect object which glowed in your mind at the start, but it is still a rewarding journey with, happily, no end in sight.
