I have been making functional stoneware pottery at Portsoy since 1972. I get excited about making on the wheel - especially large pieces which I like to decorate and enhance with brushstrokes and extrusions. Functionality is key - pieces are to be used and I get great delight in seeing my pots with food in etc. I have been 'restricted' to an electic kiln at Portsoy but recently have been delighting in reduction firing at Watergaw Ceramics and am loving the effect of flame on a toasty body.
