I am a studio potter based in Paeroa, New Zealand and specialise mainly in wheel thrown work. I also enjoy wood firing and vapour glazing.
My Gallery page has links to my picture galleries and information about why I make these kinds of pots.
The Information page has my contact details, my gallery contacts and lots more.
I'm keen to take on workshops and other teaching assignments and I have more information about what kinds of classes I run under my Teaching page.
My Glaze pages contain a basic glaze course and information useful for exploring the world of glazing.
Another of my interests is kiln designs and I have built a number of wood fired, gas and diesel fired kilns, see these on the Kilns page along with other radical kiln ideas.
Under Information I have a few stories about my travels (mostly ceramic focused) including my recent ICF escapade, see the Travel page.


This Month


My kiln building took a bit of a break for a month, but I'm back into it now. Firstly by building a new woodshed at street level and secondly by building a deck around the kiln making it less likely I'll fall down the bank. Then I got onto the firebox and finished that off and insulated the chamber. So now the kiln is ready to fire, apart from the district wide fireban that will prevent that event until February.
