I am a ceramicist and linocut printmaker based in Greenwich, London.
For my hand built ceramics I explore abstract mark making using textures and mono print techniques on greenware clay with colour clay slips and oxides. At the next stage I use matt and shiny glazes and wax resist to create different surface effects. My main body of work is a collection of one-off cylinder vases that can be grouped together and more recently I have been developing a range of lamp bases. In addition to this I have created a collection of one-off mini mantelpiece sculptures and birds in black stoneware with incised abstract patterns.
I am originally from a printed textile background and have always loved post-war British textile designers and they have a great influence on my ceramic work. I admire the freedom of their mark making and abstract pattern.
Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.
Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
This is just a first step, so don't worry, there’ll be plenty of chances to discuss details before finalising a commission.
