I always loved making things with my hands. There is nothing like seeing something coming together in front of you. In my teenage years I would disappear into the shed and make giant holders for the ostrich eggs my parents had on their farm (ostriches, I know, a story for another time perhaps). 


One of the other great pleasures I get from making bowls is listening to music. This gives me real escape. I have provided the first album I listen to when I started making each of these collections. Maybe you haven't heard of the record, go check them out. 


My bowls have exhibited and sold around the world. Others I have gifted to very special friends. I can do commissioned pieces or you can just buy what hasn't already sold.
