The studio was purpose built in 2006 as an internal space within an old farm barn, which also houses my kiln and a couple of donkeys. I did the work myself after completing my course in Ireland. It is well equipped with three wheels, slab roller, extruder, electric kiln and of course my 80 cubic foot wood fired kiln.
All of my work is made in the studio except when the weather is good I take the wheels outside and throw in the sun. Partly because it’s nice but mainly because of the speed with which the pots dry, making me able to get a lot more done.
I have a designated glaze research area where I try to develop new glazes, experimenting with local materials that I have collected from the surrounding area.
