About The Artwork

In my series of fruit and vegetables, the pineapple is a great favourite. Each scale is hand cut and applied. It takes a very long time. The piece is then glazed in a dark green glaze of my own recipe. The whole thing is fired to 1250 degrees C which makes it very hard wearing and tough. I named it after Magritte, "Ceci n'est pas un ananas". It could sit pleasingly in the home or even the office and would be ideally suited to a vegetable based environement like a business or a shop. A great fun piece for interior decorating or any interesting setting. I like making fun sculptures.

I am a French professional potter living and working in England. My first experiments in sculpture were as a young boy in French Algeria when I used to gather lumps of wall plaster out of bombed out houses and carve them. Many years later I found myself in London as a Language assistant and part time teacher as part of my studies, and enrolled in a Pottery evening class. I discovered a real Pottery in my part of East London and started helping on my day off and learning a little. I was the Saturday boy and Heather was the Wednesday girl.We met at the Christmas party and in 1972 started our own pottery. We moved to Lincolnshire in 1973 and open Alford Pottery. We produce mainly handthrown stoneware tableware and supplied many shops, galleries, restaurants and coffee shops and private customers all over the world. It wasn't until 2000 that I started sculpting seriously, specialising in stoneware paperclay and occasionally other materials and found objects. Having favored Trompe l'oeil style for years, to deceive and surprise the onlookers, I now sculpt in a more contemporary style and at times abstract. I have also realised many private commissions.
