Thanks for visiting

My journey in ceramics started when I was 16, at a night class run by the Auckland Studio Potters. But it wasn’t until I started studying ceramics at tertiary level that I realised that I was hooked. For the last 22 years I’ve been a professional potter, developing my love of clay and fire.

Check out my Posts page for how my last woodfiring went.

The Pottery portfolio pages have also all been updated with my latest work with the newest pots featured first.

If you want  to know more about me or find an outlet for my work then check out the Information page.

Kilns

If you want a kiln built or advice about firing - then please get in touch. I've built wood and oil kilns for myself and clients, including anagama, bourry, dutch oven, salt and soda kilns. I also have experimented with a variety of performance kiln.

I have taught a variety of classes and workshops over the years - from beginner to tertiary level. Currently I run my own workshop series through Rahu Road Pottery.
