I am a Dutch ceramicist based in Dundee. After a career in science I fell in love with the possibilities of clay. My interest in how things work, both in the natural and in the man-made world, guides me in trying to capture processes and movement in my work.

I work in stoneware, using hand-building techniques, decorated with slips, oxides and glazes. My work focuses on sculptural vases which are built double-walled, ie the inside has a different shape than the outside which creates a sense of solidity with contrast between inside and outside.
