|I did a degree in computer science back in the stone age. This was so long ago that we didn’t have
monitors, the computer communicated through a teletype. I was always interested in computer
graphics but I became frustrated with how little the computer could do.
For some time I taught computing and developed an interest in ceramics on the side. This interest took
over and I gave up teaching to make wood and oil fired saltglaze. During this period we home
