I make one off pieces inspired by the strong forms of South African Traditional Ceramics. I am passionate about age old coiling techniques using terracotta clay.   I don’t let the technique of production dictate the end result and sometimes use alternative methods of production such as throwing and casting based on the African forms.

I obtained my Master of Ceramic Design degree at the University of Johannesburg in 2007 and teach studio ceramics from The Pottery Studio in Bryanston, South Africa.   I have exhibited extensively and have work in collections in Denmark, the USA and South Africa.  I have won ceramic scholarships, grants, residencies and awards as well as contributing as a selector and award judge for the Potters Association of Namibia’s Ceramics Biennale and for Ceramics Southern Africa.  In 2012 I was honored as a Fellow of Ceramics Southern Africa.  The beginning of 2013 I was represented by Southern Guild at the Design Days Dubai fair and invited to exhibit at the Miami/Basel premier international art show for Modern and contemporary work.
