My ceramic work is a celebration of the 1950s era. I decorate my slip-cast earthenware with the iconic imagery of furniture and appliances of the time - the period's advances in atomic and molecular science technology influenced many of the designs. Icons of 1950s furniture, textiles and ceramics still endure today to become sought after collectors' items. The all-over style of the images references the fashionable Staffordshire ceramics of the '50s.

It was a time when childhood was unsullied by media images and when consumerism had not yet dominated everyday life. Some of my work depicts this innocence.

Digital technology plays an important part in my work process. Scanned images are manipulated and incorporated electronically. Digital transfer technology makes it possible to apply my drawn designs to glazed ware.
