HOW WERE YOU FIRST INTRODUCED TO THIS  TYPE OF WORK/ARTISTIC PRACTICE - AND WHAT  DID YOU ENJOY ABOUT YOUR EARLY  EXPLORATION OF IT?

First at Secondary School, and then Art School and on through Training College and in turn Art Teaching. I did enjoy it of course, but it's compulsive, and it becomes a way of life.

HOW HAS YOUR WORK/ARTISTIC PRACTICE CHANGED AND DEVELOPED OVER THE YEARS? WHAT FACTORS DO YOU THINK AFFECTED THIS?

In some ways I have become less professional and more driven to create gallery work, whereas in the beginning it was Production Pottery (Planters and Domestic Ware etc.)
