I cast pieces that reference 18th and 19th Century British and European tableware. They are earthenware with coloured glazes, oxide transfers and hand painted with gold lustre.
My work looks back to traditional tableware design but my line drawings bring a contemporary feel to each piece. My jugs and vases are made from moulds originally used by Spode in Stoke-On-Trent where I am based. My workshop is at the famous Middleport Pottery site in Burslem.
I graduated from Staffordshire University in 2014 and have had a fantastic first couple of years as a designer maker.
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.
