Working beside the 17th Century Harbour at Portsoy means that I see many boats passing
through - I particularly like the old sailing boats and capture this image for people
to take home a memory of Portsoy.
These pieces were originally developed for Clay in Bloom in 2004...
...since then they have progressed further and now often have a gilt edging.
The proud rooster is a classic image with strong colouring - it lends itself to my
palette of glazes and it is great to see the personality of each finally emerge form
the kiln - each is an individual!
My recent hoolit pots started out in early 2008 whilst creating a pot for the annual
Kindrogan award - the theme was “harry Potter” and so an owl was perfect! I have
now developed the image onto large jars with a modelled hoolit on top...
I really enjoy making teapots - over the years these have been in varying sizes and
colours, with recent teapots mainly being made in porcelain so that they are translucent
when held up to the light...
