The first time I touched clay at art school, I was drawn to its unlimited potential of design and workability in realizing my creative ideas.


Clay from the earth, water, air and fire are the essential elements which must be harmonized to create a ceramic form. Whether it is a functional bowl, made on the wheel, an abstract sculpture using extrusions, hand built with slabs or cast in a mold, all the basic elements are the same.


The clay needs water to make it workable, air for drying and fire to make it permanent. After that the limitations are only out with your creative imagination. My studio is always open. You can come watch me work or get your hands in some clay. Experienced or beginner, young or old, anyone can come to The Firehouse pottery  and experience  the creative and magical powers of clay.
