If you love jazzy handmade ceramics you've come to the right place!
I am an artist working from my studio in rural Lincolnshire. My ceramics are hand thrown on the wheel in porcelain and decorated in abstract underglaze colours. They are inspired by the flow and soothing qualities of the ocean and my fascination of bold colour and pattern in relation to energy and movement.
I started my ceramics training during the second year of my Fine Art degree at Sheffield Hallam University. For my Third year Degree Show I made a collection of coil built vases which were exhibited in our studios in summer 2018. To check them out head to my Degree Show vases page where you can see them photographed in all their glory by the wonderful Hannah Soar. I sold my Berlin Vase to the University where it is currently on display in one of the Hallam buildings around Sheffield.
After my course finished I went on to work as an apprentice for Salt Glaze potter Margaret Gardiner in Hertfordshire. This role included production throwing and constructing mugs, helping with Salt firings and selling her pots at shows around the UK. This was where I honed in on my throwing skills and learned to use porcelain clay for the first time.
Since moving back home in summer 2019 I have created a studio space in my parents house and purchased a Rohde wheel and kiln. My work is still developing as the weeks go by, firing after firing and I am enjoying the process of seeing my practice evolve.
