Working on commissions, but possibly some exciting exhibitions coming up so planning a big piece. More details when things are more definite! #ceramics #ceramicsculpture #clay #hares #stmelangell #patronsaintofhares

Exhibitions! Do you remember them, I mean in person walking round looking at actual art and maybe having tea and cake? Well this is my first for a long time. It is always fun in a beautiful location what’s not to like?

Ok so the procrastination has to stop now as half a ton of clay has arrived think I need to move it!

Procrastination takes all different forms, one of mine (and I am an expert!) is gardening, especially when the sunshine’s after some grey days. But this morning I found an unusual weed in my daisy patch maybe a bernardaflora will it spread?

Sorry can’t do anything today as I am working as the cat bed! This has nothing to do with Bernard loving me he just hates the mock fur blanket and sinuses my legs instead😂 #cats #devotion #avoidingwork #midsummer

A friend sent me this photo t(hank you catherine) of the @tinyartandcraftgallery window in @henleyonthames it is tiny but has the most beautiful paintings and artwork really worth a visit #ceramics #ceramicsculpture #clay #headplanters #porcelainbirds

Taking photos of swift’s is like taking photos of dolphins, you can see them but the camera can’t!! But I am so happy we have swift’s this year, if you can have a favourite bird this is mine, especially when they fly screaming in groups. They make me think of spitfire pilots! #swifts #badphotos #joy #blueskys #ceramics #ceramicsculpture

I am at Roskilly’s stewarding at the#bowjigallery with #sallytullyceramics. Lovely place despite the mizzle, come and visit and enjoy the wonderful crafts on display and the ice cream. #ceramics #roskillysofficial #roskillysicecream #crafts

Does anyone else ever feel overwhelmed by all the amazing talent on Instagram? It’s lovely to see such beautiful things but in moments of doubt that I think we all have it can be a struggle. So I am making more dragons for strength! This how I start them to give a strong base to build from. #dragons #ceramics #ceramicsculpture #doubt #crankclay #throwing

Small dragons! Working on a couple of commissions this one needs to fit in my small kiln so I have to keep an eye on the height. Don’t get carried away!

Bernard is very pleased the sun has come out at last! Wind is still quite sharp but definitely an improvement on yesterday. I am hoping some of the large pots will start to dry now #pottery #potterycat #sunshine #wenfordbridgepottery #dryingpots

Turning a large bird bath ready for the collar to go on. I have to put plastic up when using the large bat to try and control the turnings, otherwise they end up in inaccessible places!

Just back from Lundy Island what a magical place including the force 10 gale on Thursday. Even with three of us holding on to each other we could hardly stand up. But the other days were fine and the coastline is amazing. I now need to get down to work! #lundyisland #sea #weather #gales #holiday #ceramicinspiration

I am off for a week from early tomorrow morning, going to Lundy Island. No phone signal and limited broadband but lots of wildlife and views. #lundyisland #barnowls #holiday #seaviews #rest

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.
