I believe the small pleasures of life should be treasured. For me one aspect of this involves using everyday items made in mouthwatering colours which make me smile. I love to make pots that are functional, pretty and unique.
My pottery is thrown on a wheel and then decorated with coloured slips, a transparent glaze and ceramic transfers. I use terracotta clay, as I like the warmth and richness of the colour and the effect created when the clay breaks through the softly coloured slips.
I am inspired by the colours and patterns of some of my favourite things – from vintage fabrics and china, to ice cream and macaroons.
My ‘Story’ range is inspired by my love of old, illustrated children’s books. The designs come from favourite books of my childhood, which still hold a kind of magic for me.
My work has featured in Country Living, Homes and Antiques, Period Living and Ceramic Review.
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.
