Handmade Tiles


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

Through a spontaneous brushwork language I explore the pattern effects of everyday life;  these are imprinted, often unconsciously, on our mind's eye.   I use natural colour oxides which sink into the glaze surface during firing, giving depth and interest.  

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'.
