A return to England after almost two decades in Australia! My studio (above), in an old Victorian weaving mill in the Yorkshire Dales. For the first few years I was the only person working there until it became an Arts and Heritage Centre.
A new studio, kiln and ceramic technology plus very different inspirational sources to develop my ideas. I was "outside my comfort zone" for a while but quickly realised that I could adapt my Australian approach to the new work I was embarking on.
