Chris graduated from the Belfast College of art and the Ulster college of Art and design before potting and teaching in Ireland England France and Norway. Opened his first pottery in1967 in the National Trust property of Castleward in Ireland. Five years he moved his studio to Hillsborough in co. Down where he made all types of stoneware, building ceramic murals and teaching. Relocated to South Africa in 1982 and established his studio on a smallholding in Muldersdrift where he works to this day.
I work in stoneware mostly, some terra-cotta and in other temperatures when needed. Working mostly to order producing decorative and functional ware of all types. There is always a stock of work at the studio. I will consider any ceramic project from teapots to murals. In recent times decorated wash basins have taken a lot of my production. My style tends to be in the Anglo- Japanese tradition using free brushwork and feldspatic glazes
