Hi, my name is Tom Somerville. My passion is pottery. I live and work in Helensville NZ. My brand is Muddy Fingers and you can find more about my style at www.muddyfingersnz.com.
I really like making things, especially things that might be appreciated and cherished. Pottery seems a perfect fit for me.
I met my wife while working in Tonga. I spend as much time as I could snorkelling about the reefs. I loved those secret little worlds that were abuzz with life. Nowadays, we have a joint passion for gardening. As a result of these two influences my work tends to be inspired by foliage, flowers, corals and fish.
