Candletsicks are made from eclectic pieces of Victorian detritus – clinker, cup-handles, teapot lids, gilded spouts, etc – found on the south bank of the Medway Estuary. (Photos: Michael Harvey)
Lidded vessels (‘Tea Caddies’ are for holding tea, maybe, they remind me of allotment and garden sheds that have grown old. Able to do their job with a story attached).
My work is based around recycling, whether it is styles from different cultures or using the clay and glazes left over from teaching sessions.
