Boscastle it was grey and cold but I took my daughter and we had a lovely stroll, unfortunately the excellent exhibition about the flood in August 2004 has gone and the space has been taken over by the National Trust shop. The rock formations along the harbour are wonderful and the colour of the lichen and what looks like iron or copper deposits make amazing patterns so good inspiration

Lovely walk to Lundy Bay today, weather was grey but sea was beautiful as ever.

Glorious frosty morning at last after the dull damp weather so good to see the sun and the snowdrops are appearing.

Grey wet day today so working on some new ideas for bird windows. Most of the idea will be worked out in clay but I find it helpful to sketch and think about them as well. I have had a couple of months with lack of inspiration and joy so I am taking some time out to play!

Sheep may safely graze, it was too wet to do a final cut of the grass but because of the mild weather it’s kept growing!! So we let in a little help!

Cool dudes median and small head vases #ceramics #sculpturalceramics #headvases #punk #sunglasses #cooldudes

I didn’t like her at first but now she is fired I like the rather cool look. I tried black and an orange stain, the black has softened and is slightly blue and the orange is very soft. In ceramics as in much of life you have to let go of expectations and go with the results. I have been really struggling with finding inspiration and then manage to break a large head vase putting it the kiln. But thankfully this kiln is good and gives me some ideas to work with. Just keep going!!

Landscape in all its natural glory and especially the magic of Cornwall is my constant inspiration.

My work is also inspired by stories, poetry, myths and legends from around the world. Additional influences include the faces of Modigliani, heads of Egyptian tombs, and Buddhist headdresses.

The sculptural heads and planters are designed to work in the natural environment to enhance any path, patio or garden space.

My work is exhibited at my studio, various galleries and art fairs around the UK. You are welcome to pop in at any time or look at my website and Facebook page to see my up and coming pieces.

I do commissions and bespoke personalised works of art for special occasions such as wedding gifts, birthdays or anniversaries.

My studio, The Potter’s Barn at Wenford Bridge Pottery near St Breward is open to visitors. Please phone or email before coming so we can be in to welcome you. There is also the wonderful Snail’s Pace Café opposite the pottery so you can have coffee, cakes or lunch and even hire a bike to cycle along the Camel trail. There is ample parking the Pottery.
