Commissioned work

For commissioned pieces it could simply be a case of choosing a combination of preferred material, form, size and finish.

Where an abstract figurative piece is chosen, my aim is to create a piece that evokes a cherished memory or represents a very personal situation and one which seems to improve with repeated contemplation and when viewed from different levels and in different lights.

The customer is therefore very much involved at the design stage. Please note : Working in clay takes time. All this work is hand-built but it is the nature of the clay which requires periods of drying in stages before being fired, sometimes two or three times.
