His ceramics are recognizable for a strong sculptural quality and emphasis on form. The shapes of his pots are generated in computer code. He has developed this working process out of an interest in the way computer code can mimic natural codes, patterns and growth structures. A graduate of the Royal College of Art, London he exhibits internationally and lectures, undertakes artist residencies and workshops in the UK and abroad.
