Individual ceramics made during the 1980's and 1990's have gained many awards and are in public collections and museums in Europe and the Far East. Exhibitions have been held in Britain, the U.S.A., Europe, the Middle East, Japan, Korea and New Zealand, and his work has been featured in books and other publications.
The majority of his ceramic work has its origins in the thrown vessel form, from which variations on themes are developed. After throwing, the pieces are cut and reassembled with additions. When dry the delicate task of carving and sanding the surface of the pieces creates the textures that are needed for finishing. Several firings are then made to low stoneware temperatures with different glazes and slips, and then lustre fired to around 700 degrees.
