Living on the West coast of Scotland, I not only take my inspiration from the spectacular and captivating landscape that surrounds me every day, but also from the archaeology of Argyll. I am spoilt for choice with the wealth of Prehistoric archaeological sites, and I find that the Neolithic and Bronze age sites are not only a continuing inspiration to me but are also a major influence on my present work.
I reproduce Neolithic, Bronze Age, and Iron Age pottery for Museums, and I also take private commissions. Using stoneware and earthenware clays, these pots are hand coiled and ?Pit? fired as it may have been done thousands of years ago. It is by using some of these same methods that I also produce the ?Kilvaree? collection, engraving the ?Celtic? designs by hand, and without using glazes I rely on the natural beauty of the clay to flourish throughout the entire pot making and wood firing process.
