About and some Exhibitions

I trained and worked as a Design Engineer for many years. I started making pots in 1965. Left engineering to train as a teacher at Neville's Cross College, Durham. Taught art and pottery at a comprehensive school in Gateshead. Left full time teaching to work as a self employed potter in my own studio workshop at Washington Art Centre for 20 years.      I was a founder member of the Northern Potters Association, it is their 40th anniversary this year 2017.   Now work from my home studio making one off pots for galleries and craft shops.
