Patricia was born in Scotland but grew up in Devon. After studying ceramics in London finances and a love of cooking led her into work as a chef. Having worked in Italy she eventually moved to the Isle of Skye where she returned to making pots.
Patricia prefers hand building but does return to wheel throw work every so often. Her vessels reflect the rocky environment of Skye and texture has become a driving force of her creative development as a potter. She mainly divides her work between wood-fired, sager-fired, raku and porcelain.
Patricia has been a selected member of the Craft Potters Association since 2015.
