This is my very first piece of pottery I made at Primary school, at the age of 10. My teacher, Mr Rose said “it looks like The Thinker by Rodin”.

After he had said this, I wondered who “Rodin” was. I soon realised who he was after researching him in my art book.

This was my inspiration for doing more art and sculpture.

This piece is called Two Headed Dragon.

This was made at secondary school, out of clay with white glaze on top.

This is the first piece of pottery I made after my stroke. It was made whilst I was at High Wycombe rehabilitation centre.

I only had the use of my left hand which I had never used before. I gave this cottage to my mother.
