Philip's skilled craftsmanship is at the heart of everything he makes and his pots are the embodiment of his years of experience. Slowly and carefully constructed by hand, these pieces are the ultimate expressionof traditional techniques combined with an artist's eye for beauty and proportion.
"It is my desire to produce work from the heart. Pots which speak deeply of beauty, completeness and which even aspire to perfection. My hands and eyes are my best tools and with these I coil, throw and hand-build pieces which can be enjoyed for generations. Always on a grand scale, my work is rooted in the traditional and yet is intrinsically contemporary; a fine balance which culminates in something enduring, something timeless. Purity of form is everything, sensitive use of colour - vital, but it is meticulous attention to detail that makes a piece sing." - Philip.
