About this Sheffield Potter

I've been making pottery in Sheffield since 2012. It has been frustrating at times but also very rewarding. As a self taught potter I have learnt things the hard way. Sometimes I would open the kiln and hate everything I found. That hurts when you've invested so much time in the making process.

I don't like to be beaten by anything. So I spent hours upon hours reading about glaze ingredients, throwing techniques and making processes. Little by little I have improved to the stage where I am actually pleased with most of the stuff I pull out of the kiln.

Working as a chef full time and raising a family makes my pottery time limited. It's tough to motivate myself to go out to the studio and work at 9pm for a few hours. But I wouldn't do it if I didn't love it. When I get good feedback it makes it all worthwhile.

Thanks for looking :)
