I'm a pottery/ceramics practitioner, lecturer, and artist. I grew up on a remote farm before we got a tractor and electricity, so we had horses and paraffin lamps and seasons for everything/everything in its season. For 13 years I was taught at home, but spent most of the time out in nature. Boarding school and the world I entered was a shock, so I have spent much of my life searching for re-connection. I'm very grateful to be working now to help retain/redevelop this opportunity for children/adults.
