Debbie first trained as a textile artist, specialising in embroidery and surface decoration. After 10 years she returned to college to retrain as a potter having a life-long interest in ceramics. Debbie’s current work is all made using the Raku firing method, specifically naked Raku. All her ceramics are highly decorative with emphasis on pattern reflecting the influence from a textile background. She has worked to develop the technique, pushing the boundaries on what can be achieved.Debbie has a recognisable style and use of pattern which is something that she would like to build on by moving into using colour and other methods of application.
