My early interest in art was rekindled in 1975 when I undertook Teacher Workshop classes in ceramics at St Albans College of Art and Design. After a year I was thoroughly hooked and have continued my studies at Hertfordshire University.
Together with my wife Lisbeth De La Cour, who is also a potter, I constructed a pottery in the grounds of our house in St Albans. The range of our work stretches from traditional stoneware to more colourful majolica.
My work in this exhibition is especially influenced by bright colours which can be achieved by the use of majolica glaze and I decorate my bowls with vivid paintings of fruit, flowers, boats, fish and other images which express my love of the sea and countryside.
