I make stoneware pottery in the Scottish Borders.
Since 1994 I have been living in Stow, where I work in the old howff, which I have
gradually been converting into a studio.
I now produce a distinctive style of stoneware pottery that takes its theme from the Scottish Borders
countryside where I live, with an appliqué technique applied to traditional forms. My sheep range has
become a favourite with tourists and collectors alike, while my depictions of Eyemouth harbour are drawn
from the more coastal areas.
My work includes tableware, kitchenware, and decorative items, all of which can be
personalized to order. For 2009 I am producing some commemorative plaques, celebrating Robert Burns' 250th anniversary.
I am a founding member of The Crafters, a co-operative
association formed in 1998 in Melrose. We are a group of crafts people from around the Scottish Borders who
have come together to allow us to market our wares without having to pay large commission fees to others.
