Ever since I started making pottery fifty-five years ago, I have drawn inspiration from the past. Old pots speak so eloquently of their maker, his materials and his skills, and reflect his time and culture. Inevitably this is true of my work too.
I hope to infect my audience with my fulfilling obsessions, and at the same time challenge and amuse them with pots that they use in their daily lives. Pottery is seldom credited with its true cultural and intellectual weight, it can so easily be coaxed towards the celebrated world of fine art, away from its place at the heart of civilisation. I remain undeterred: a potter.
