I take inspiration from the rich history within the ceramic field, combining materials, techniques and processes which are not commonly seen side by side and layering them to create objects that are rich with colour, texture and material quality.

What to expect: Visitors will see a range of finished work alongside pieces at various stages of completion. I use a variety of processes from throwing pots on the wheel to screen printing pattern work, pattern application and painting directly onto the surface.

Directions: From Dumfries take the B725 signposted Glencaple turning left into the Crichton Campus at the gatehouse. Then follow the Spring Fling signs to the internal courtyard.

Accessibility: There is ample parking directly outside the studio with level ground between parking and entrance. Studio is on the ground floor with a ground floor toilet.

Recommendation: Cubbies. Eat. Drink. 35 Bank St, Dumfries, DG1 2PA. A great little vegetarian-friendly takeaway with an interesting take on wraps and sandwiches.
