I have been making pots for over forty years now, and, as you would expect, my work has developed and changed.
It has become quieter, with simpler patterning leading the eye back to the form of the piece rather than emphasising itself. In a society increasingly geared to industrial production, it can be difficult to argue the case for making by hand. I am convinced however that handmade objects have unique qualities which cannot be emulated by the machine. These qualities relate to the possibility of individual decision-making taking place during the production which allows for an open-ended process.
