25 Years of Making

I have been making pottery on the Isle of Skye for 25 years. I am so happy to be celebrating this very personal anniversary with a solo show of new work at The Scottish Gallery in Edinburgh.  We will be publishing a small monograph of images, thoughts, reflections to accompany the show. I hope many of you will be able to join us at the Gallery.

I am delighted to be showing my new work at Beaux Arts Bath. After a long slow year of making in 2022 I have managed to fire the kilns a few times to pull together this collection.
