Since then working as an independent ceramist.
Contributed to exhibitions in; Italy, England, Germany, France and the Netherlands. Some pieces included in the collections of; Museum Princessehof in Leeuwarden, Groninger Museum in Groningen and Museum Boijmans van Beuningen in Rotterdam.
Study tours to Germany, France, India, Thailand and China have enabled to develop more personal techniques.
These influences have led to freer use of the forms made in stoneware and porcelain.
Self constructed gas and wood kilns are essential for securing the desired result.
The starting point for every work piece is a wheel thrown shape of stoneware or porcelain.
Transforming, cutting, pressing, unrolling, slip-trailing and brush-stroking are key activities for obtaining the desired final result.
Fire marks are essential. These are created by firing the pieces in a wood-or gasfired salt kiln.
