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 and finely pinched edges. Breathtaking!

White Edges vase 2 ht 20cm £120
Cleft Standing forms – the deep Black Cleft of Beinn Alligin features on the carved surface of this tall sculptural form.
Cleft Standing form 2 ht 52cm £180
Edges bowls – 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, with an appearance of delicacy that belies great strength.
Edges oval dish width 25cm £120
Landslip vase – like the action of ice I have gouged and scraped facets of the pots and applied thick layers of slip. Referencing the Japanese ethos of wabi sabi – imperfect and impermanent – these pots fit easily in the home whilst still making a striking statement.
Folded vases – twists and folds in sedimentary layers inspire these quiet thoughtful pieces.
Black Folded vases ht 17 cm and 18cm £98
Erosion bowl – endless erosion and weathering creates beautifully subtle textures that I emulate with layers of slip – alternating between building up layers and scraping back until a pattern is revealed.
