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!
Mountain Edges bowls
Wheel thrown from fine white porcelain. The bowls are inspired by sheer rock faces with precipitous edges. Energetic sweeps of porcelain slip decorate the forms making intriguing delicate edges.
Thrown porcelain bowl with a delicately pulled rim that contrasts with the velvety smooth surface.

Cleft Standing form
The deep Black Cleft of Beinn Alligin features on the carved surface of this tall sculptural form. Thrown stoneware with crackled porcelain decoration.
Mountain Edges bowl – small
Snow and ice formations inspired the textural slip decoration.
Black Mountain Edges bowl
The Mountain Edges bowl in a glossy black glaze.
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.
