I established Selborne Pottery in Hampshire in 1985, after attaining a BA Hons in ceramics at West Surrey College of Art and Design in Farnham.

All my work is hand thrown and turned stoneware. No machines or moulds are used and the traditional techniques have taken years to perfect. The pottery draws on skills rarely practiced today. Combined with high temperature stoneware glazes, fine brushwork, wax resist and glaze trailing, the finished pots with rich copper red and cobalt blue glazes are both useful and ornamental whilst looking contemporary. On the Specials range, gold lustre is decorated by hand onto the stoneware and is then fired adding an opulence not normally found on studio pottery.

The pots are oven and dishwasher safe.
