Michael worked in the creative industries and his expertise includes creative and strategic consultancy, brand development, large-scale retail exhibition and promotional display design for international clients.
Originally from South Wales and then based in central London for many years, Michael relocated to the pastoral beauty of east Suffolk, UK to develop his interests in ceramics, graphic illustration and publishing.
Michael’s ceramic works are inspired by the forms, shapes and decorations of the ancient civilisations and the British decorative arts tradition realised in a contemporary style.
His working practice has developed by using the techniques of the hand built coil pot in stoneware, worked to achieve various textures and decorated with natural oxides and contemporary glazes.
He applies his extensive experience in graphic illustrations to create uncompromising images for story books made in collaboration with author Robert Cattell through their publishing venture, Tricksterville and as decorations for his range of ceramics.
