‘The farming landscape has always been the inspiration for my work. Today's pots have moved closer to the source of that inspiration. In them is reflected both my landscape now and a search for those ancestors who farmed it thousands of years ago. The new pots fill my benches like Coptic jars preserving the viscera of this landscape’.

Chris is a singular potter. He is not remotely concerned about the craft mainstream but highly focused on what he calls a ‘sense of rightness’. His journey, which he hopes has some way to go yet, is a potent mix of landscape, memory and high craft. His standards are exacting and his search for ‘rightness’ underpins the continuous development of his work.
