Years ago I used to have a painting workshop in one of the buildings at The Winchcombe Pottery. I used to chat with Ray and Mike Finch, Eddie
Hopkins and visiting potters, but didn't have a go. A few more years later I used to swap eggs for egg cups with Ray Finch......but it was
only recently that I started working with clay.
Over a year ago, I joined a Saturday morning class at the famous Winchcombe Pottery. Matt Grimmitt taught us all and after my many attempts at slip decoration , told me about sgraffito.....I am now completely hooked! I love Thomas Toft slipware dishes but I find that my style of illustration seems to work well on the earthenware pots.
Matt kindly made me some mugs and I decorated them giving them to friends and family as Christmas presents.

Just a little note ...my own work is fired at the pottery but I am not employed as a Winchcombe Pottery, Potter.
