So, this amazing, crazy thing happened last year... 👏 after my husband bought me tickets as a birthday present to see Grayson Perry. I sent a tweet in response to Grayson's call out  #justbeyourself for the one man show and guess what - this shot of me and my tweet ap...

I've never been particularly girly...

I love a good tool (no sniggering at the back please!) and pottery is definitely a brilliant way to indulge my habit. For every job, there's a tool or two and I seem to have collected more than most. Still, I need something to put i...

Tired of turning? Try a taper... 

I'm frankly too lazy to make and fire chucks for turning difficult pieces such as jugs and vases so have developed a signature style that requires neither! It's not lazy, it's pragmatic. Honest, Guv. All the jugs, mugs and vessels I'm c...
