I design and make in porcelain, semi porcelain and stoneware using slip casting, press moulds and hand building methods. My recent work is intended for everyday use.
I love processes and handling materials. I believe that handmade work is relevant and can create positive connections between people and bring pleasure.
After studying an Applied Arts BA I specialised in ceramics setting up my own studio in East London producing small batches of simple Scandinavian influenced slip cast tableware. I also made tiny wearable art based on Japanese Inros.
My interests in food, history, ritual and identity were further informed after completing a ceramic residency in Japan. Japanese and Scandinavian aesthetics continue to be a source of inspiration.
I have worked in arts education and run workshops in visual arts, in collaboration with other artists, schools and communities. I now work from a smallholding in rural Shropshire on the Welsh border.
