Apprenticed to Viennese Master potter, Franz Kukowetz at his Terra Nigra studio in 1972. I later studied Majolica while working as production potter at the Old Chelsea Pottery in London. 

Being a student of Japanese ink-painting for many years means much of my ceramic work becomes a canvas for Sumi-e brushwork.

The soft coloured glazes are mostly ash-based. Native coastal vegetation, hinterland rainforest, apple and grapevine woods are all used. These are all burned separately to maintain the purity of the ash.

My work is fired to 1280 degrees in a gas kiln.

I acknowledge that I live and make on unceded Boonwurrung land. I acknowledge the Bunurong people as the traditional custodians of this region and pay my respects to Bunurong elders past and present
