Purplesnail took part in AldeburghArt on the  21st and 22nd May and many people stopped by to see our stand. As you can see from the photograph we were not displaying any art, but we were asking a question. Thank you to all those who gave us their responses, if you were unable to answer at the time or did  not attend on Saturday or Sunday please click on the  postcard below to read our question, then send your responses to

PS Please note we are aware of the gaffe in the text on the postcard, hung should be hanged. :-)

Christchurch Park

Snow was swirling all around the park, the sky looked heavy and pinky-grey and the trees were slightly opaque.

“Pier View” is plastic clay and oil on canvas  40 x30 cms

This is the view from my balcony on a winter’s morn. The horizon is constantly changing and this was a day when it was there and contributing to the whole land and seascape.

My work is of an abstract quality and evolves as a response to my environment, shapes and patterns in nature particularly influence me, and these images are then distilled into non-representational interpretations.

I work in stoneware and porcelain combining traditional methods and materials to create contemporary sculptural pieces which are often fused with metal, wood or slate: I am particularly interested in colours derived from natural sources.  Much of the work is hand-built, and colour has been achieved using oxides and traditional firing methods such as raku and smoke firing.

I seek a balance between the controlled structure of the work and the chaos of the firing.  These elements combine in the production of the finished form and surface.
