Port Hills Pottery, Christchurch 2017
From my home and workshop on Dyers Pass Road, I look across the Canterbury Plains to the Southern Alps. My glazes are made using the fine particles wind-blown from the mountains that are deposited in wide seams at the base of the Port Hills. Between my gaze and glaze, and in the pottery making process, there is a union that I value and strive for. My pots are functional, have a clean simplicity with a peaceful earthly palette of blues, greens, creams and russets, and are made to be used and enjoyed every day.
