My passions are for clay and plants, which stems from my occupation as a gardener. I combined both these interests on my degree course in ceramics at Cardiff School of Art & Design. Since graduating in 2009, I have worked in a shared ceramic studio exploring the effects of shape, pattern, silhouettes, shadows, and contrasts of abstract and natural forms.
My present range consists of small, thrown porcelain vases. Straight sides and turned bases contrast with the organic silhouettes of incised plant designs, which are delicately and laboriously carved into the surface. Each piece is unique, no design being exactly the same. Transparent glazes are combined with grey, green and blue glaze stains, creating subtle hues that enhance the carving.
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.
