Veronica makes handthrown translucent porcelain bowls and vases, always trying to throw the clay as thinly as possible in order to exploit its fluidity and translucency. She alters some forms by carving and cutting or folding the rims, and decorates by water-etching and carving or applying slips to get more texture. Some pieces are glazed on the inside only and polished on the outside in order to create contrasting surfaces. A range of domestic ware is decorated with indented dimples or dashes of blue or green. All the work is fired in an electric kiln to 1280 degrees.
Veronica is mainly self-taught and, as the daughter of a leading archaeologist, she was much influenced by the fineness of ancient pottery while working on excavations in Crete. She has always been fascinated by decoration and intricate designs in a variety of media and in nature. Above all she likes to create a sense of movement in the porcelain and recently has been exploring the different qualities in the varieties of porcelain that are available in France and in the UK.
Veronica worked in Nairn, Scotland for over twenty years and moved to South-West France to set up a new workshop in 2008. She continues to use her workshop in Scotland occasionally and exhibits in France and in the UK.
