Having had a keen interest in traditional crafts and living history, I went on to study Experimental Archaeology at University, specialising in viking age bloomery iron smelting.
These days I am very interested in ceramics, and run a pottery part-time, partly making replicas and doing experimental open firings of pottery, particularly focusing on the composition of clay bodies and potential methods of firing in British prehistory. I do my own craft work as well as displays and historical events. I am still keeping my hand in with iron smelting while I can, alongside the pottery. I did some training in traditional leatherwork and tanning also, and in the past have worked at a living history museum here in Scotland.
