I used to work as a psychiatrist but I retired a few years ago. I did some extramural courses at Liverpool University in Prehistoric Archaeology and later a couple of ceramics courses at Southport College. I have had a lifelong interest in ceramics and collect contemporary work. My favourite pieces are by Emma Rodgers, Sasha Wardell, Tina Vlassopoulos and Peter Hayes.
I intend to enjoy this course to the max. There are endless opportunities to learn from others and to experiment.
I am married with 2 children in their 30s living in or near London and one son of 11. We live in Southport
I have my own small studio with a 7 cu ft electric kiln:
