Using a combination of wheel and hand-building techniques, Trish began potting in 1982. Her work developed into a focus on raku firing. Raku is a traditional Japanese style of firing and produces an ancient quality to ceramics. Through this focus, she was commissioned to make over 200 pots for the set of the movie The Last Samurai, filmed in Taranaki. As well as ceramics, Trish was also a talented painter. She passed away in 2005.
