I make work in both stoneware and porcelain, richly decorated using a range of motifs distilled from the observation of the natural world. Surfaces are built up with layers of glazes and oxides and further additions of gold or platinum lustre.
What to expect: I will show a body of decorative work in my house with a further range of work in porcelain and stoneware on display in my studio and garden. I will demonstrate processes and techniques as well as explaining the context and history of the work.
Directions: From Dumfries follow the A710 to New Abbey village. Pass Sweetheart Abbey then take the first right into the Church driveway. Kindar Mill is on your left beyond the Church.
Accessibility: All the work and demonstrations will be on ground floor level. One step into the studio can be ramped if necessary.
Recommendation: Abbey Cottage Tearoom, 26 Main Street, New Abbey. Lovely homemade soups and snacks with good veggie options, as well as delicious home baking.
