Greetings and welcome to my website
My name is James and I'm a ceramic and wire artist, as well as a tutor. I make animal sculptures and teach others how to do it too. It's what I do and I can't imagine doing anything else.
As well as being an artist I also run The Phoenix Studio in Towersey, near Thame - there's always something inspiring going on here, and it's a wonderful place to create.
I hope you enjoy my art and that my words inspire you to get creative too - there really is nothing like it!
Come and learn with me
