Sitting off one of Melbourne’s cobblestone laneways, my North Fitzroy studio is modest but inviting – a place to spin the wheel in concentrated solitude or engage with fellow potters and students.
A studio is a place to create, and my kiln a way to test and realise those creations. In one space there's room for conceiving, drawing, throwing forms and glazing my work or the work of others. In another sits the kiln; which akin to a child, requires both tender and active attention. Where – if successful – something magical, transformative and lovely happens.
This is where the work is bought to life, given to the fire (ha-ha) and hopefully – but not always – delivers final pieces of thoughtful and understated refinement, and that rare combination of beauty and utility.
I strive to create clean, refined forms with elegant and beautiful proportions.
