Welcome to the Chicken Run Studio
Each piece is hand built by me, in my garden studio, located in 'The Chicken Run'. You can visit my studio upon appointment. You may also find me throughout the year at Craft markets in and around Oxfordshire.
I make an eclectic mix of stoneware pottery, both wheel-thrown and hand-built. This produces work that can be functional and withstand the heat and cold both inside and outside. The durability and glaze options stoneware gives makes it practical and appealing. It doesn't stop me adding a quirky twist to some pieces.
I also indulge in Raku. I love the organic nature of raku pottery, it is so instantaneous, witnessing the glaze fluxing and changing under reduction in sawdust bins is pure chemistry in action. Running workshops has allowed me to introduce this exciting firing process with lots of other creative people.
Hope you enjoy my site.
