I am a potter and maker based in Thornhill. I produce wheel-thrown tableware and objects that celebrate simplicity and functionality, highlighting the inherent beauty of objects that are made by hand.

About My Practice

I live and work in Thornhill, Dumfries and Galloway, with my wife Laura and three young sons: Rowan, Elliot and Louie.

Having studied Design at Glasgow School of Art, I went on to work for Habitat and Ikea before turning away from mass production and establishing a studio based on my own design principles.

Tools & Materials

My new studio is within the recently redeveloped Old School Thornhill (OST), a short walk from my home.
I use stoneware clay and simple glazes to create tableware and objects made to be used and enjoyed.
