A Note To Our Friends...

Anthony and I sincerely hope that you and your family and friends have kept very well indeed and, with the easing of lockdown, that you are beginning to get out a bit more and enjoy what has sometimes been splendid weather.

As an artist and potter, two things helped me cope with lockdown. Firstly, the welcome sanctuary of my pottery workshop and studio, and secondly, our e-bikes, which we bought in the first couple of weeks to enable us to escape along beautiful country lanes and to roam free. The Spring was particularly lush this year and has inspired new paintings and my workshop shelves are now full of pots.

I have decided, therefore, to open my studio to the public again over a similar period of time to Herefordshire Art Week, which was cancelled this year.

Open Studio at Round Oak
Hoarwithy Rd, Bridstow, Ross-on-Wye HR9 6QJ
Saturday 12th – Sunday 20th September, 10am-5pm daily.

While some of my pottery will hopefully be exhibited outside, most will be in my workshop and my paintings will be in our sunroom, accessible from the garden. Catalogue attached.

If you could let us know if you are able to come, Anthony and I hugely look forward to welcoming you and we will do our best to help you feel as safe as possible, with physical distancing, sanitising zones and, should you wish to make a purchase, optional card payments.

Just come and see us – no obligation – and please keep your mask handy.

Warmest good wishes,

About me...

I am a working potter and painter married to a retired bishop and living near Ross-on-Wye in the Border Country of the Welsh Marches.

I think of myself as a storyteller, whether I’m doing pottery or painting landscapes and portraits.

My workshop is in our garden, a purpose-built shed which I open to the public during annual Open Studios, or by arrangement. My pre-Christmas Charity Shows enable me to donate 100% profits to the homeless, or to local Food Banks – my way of paying something back.

I work with two clays, stoneware and porcelain. It’s important to me to harmonise my work with the countryside, so I source local clays to make my earth coloured glazes. I decorate with wax, leaf resist, sprigs, oxides and sgraffitto. My tiny porcelain pots are decorated with translucent celadon glazes. Commissions are welcome!

I paint in oils, watercolours, acrylics and pastel.

Our local Wye valley countryside has rich textures and colours, especially the local brick and stone of churches, river bridges and dilapidated cottages, and the shifting colours of water.

I approach portraits in a similar manner to landscapes, not only seeking to portray the literal face, but also its mood and character.
