Inspired by the beautiful N W Highlands where massive mountain ranges reach down to the rugged coastline.
Memories of walking Beinn Alligin and Beinn Dampf inspired a range of tall Standing Forms with deep chasms, and eroded bowls with delicately textured edges. Breathtaking!

The Black Cleft of Beinn Alligin has inspired tall Standing Forms with deeply carved clefts and fractured surfaces.
Snow and ice with frozen waterfalls linger on the mountain faces. Porcelain is a perfect clay to create sweeps of slip that capture some of the energy of the mountains. Delicate crackly edges feature on bowls and vases.
Thinking back to effects of Ice Age glaciers on underlying rock, I’ve gouged and scraped facets of the pots. Then applied thick layers of slip. I love the Japanese ethos of wabi sabi – imperfect and impermanent and strive to create beautiful textural pots that fit easily in the home whilst still making a striking statement.
The effects of warping, folding and erosion are evident in the geology and have inspired much of the work.
