Spark: eleven

A series about people that have influenced my creative path

Last winter I managed to get a place on the Gray’s School of Art intermediate ceramics course. I turned up excited, but more than a little nervous, wondering how I would get on – I hadn’t touched a wheel in seven years. Then I met our tutor, the inspirational Morag McGee, who immediately put me at ease. So followed sixteen weeks of discovery… Morag introduced us to alternative hand building, decorating and firing techniques, not to mention the enjoyable pastime of toasting marshmallows over an outdoor kiln in the snow. She’s a multi-talented ceramicist; making bespoke figures, paperclay vessels and jewellery, and these beautiful raku landscapes. Thanks to her I plucked up the courage to start out as a studio potter.
