20140402-110618.jpgCeramics was born out of my love for Bonsai and even though I no longer do Bonsai as such, I still have a huge appreciation of Bonsai and let’s face it if I am making the pots then there still has to be an interest in the thing that goes in it.
Over the years I have had some wonderful pieces of material go through my ownership. From working with collected trees with my mentor Mick Sherman

to imported material with two Italian Masters, Enrico Savini and Ivo Saporiti

It’s is the love of Bonsai, the hobby, the people and friends that you make over the years that make it very hard to shake off what you love doing. Don’t get me wrong I have made other ware which still crops up now and again in my making but I still go back to what I love, bonsai ceramics
