I would like to reassure people that I am still open for business. I am following best practices and you can still ORDER from my website or online through GALLERIES.

A modest volume of sales during this period will help see us all (artists, exhibition organisers and galleries alike) through to the other side of this crisis. 

If you know of someone who needs a ‘virtual hug’ or a birthday or anniversary treat – you might just have come to the right place!

If you do choose to BUY an artwork from me you can be sure that I am following all official UK government advice and that every parcel is handled with care.  I work alone in my studio and my chosen couriers are operating a contactless delivery service.

Stay safe and take care




Wonderful and amusing pieces of work

British clay artist Paul Smith takes ancient myths and tales, some of which are as old or older than ceramics itself, and weaves them into wonderful and amusing pieces of fine art.

In my opinion, I think Paul’s work really stands out. Elsewhere on this site, I have written more about Smith and how he fits into the big picture. Personally, my favourite clay artist is UK sculptor Paul Smith. He is not a studio potter but produces one-off clay art pieces. They are based on European folk tales as old as the hills and he uses an art form (ceramics) which is older than the hills. I find them stunning, amusing, simple, telling and beautiful
