There is a definite Alfred Wallis feel to the sgraffito pieces featuring merchant ships, sailing boats, fishing trawlers and all things to do with the sea and coast. Rum cups, pedestal bowls, and jugs have hand painted boats and ships traversing stormy seas or sheltering in tree lined harbours. As each piece is handmade and painted they all have their own character.
The more abstract ‘Shell Range’ is made using slabbed clay decorated with soft grey glazes. These are completed with a final firing with gold or platinum lustre. They have a sculptural quality and work well in groups.
