I began making pottery in 1988. My handbuilt work and sculptural pieces were exhibited in numerous local and national exhibitions. My early work is represented in public and private collections. Pottery became my full time occupation. My talented team and I now produce a range of slipcast ware which is sold all around New Zealand. I am also well known for my sub-tropical Auckland garden.
ABOUT THE ART
Created from my original designs, made from very strong white clay, which is slipcast and highly fired, will last a lifetime indoors and outdoors and will not craze or stain. The raw clay is hand painted with underglaze stains, bisque fired, clear glazed and given a final firing to achieve the high gloss. The straight tubular legs on the birds and animals are easily removable and are made from powdercoated aluminium so they will never rust or fade. The springi-legs, also easily removable, made from powdercoated steel and are recommended for indoor use.
