In August 2003 I won the Craftsman Magazine competition at the 멠otfest in the Pens' at Penrith.
In January 2004, I was profiled in the Craftsman Magazine.
Following a trip to Japan, I was again featured in the December 2005 issue of Craftsman Magazine. This interview followed up my earlier feature and discussed how i had been influenced by the ceramics and culture of Japan, and how I felt this would affect my work
