Each tile tells its own story...

The exuberance of maiolica, painting on tin-glazed earthenware, first attracted me to ceramics and my interest in surface pattern led to tile-making. 

I explore a colourful brushwork language using natural oxide colours.   These oxides sink into the glazed surface during firing, giving depth and interest.  I seek to evoke the pattern effects of everyday life which are imprinted, often unconsciously, on our mind's eye.

My Workshop is named after a 16th century Italian, Cipriano Piccolpasso, who wrote 'The Potter's Art' published in 1548.

Piccolpasso also means ‘little step'.
