I am a ceramic designer and maker specialising in porcelain.
All of my ceramics are individually handmade with love and care by me in my studio. Each piece is unique and no two pieces are exactly the same…
I take my inspiration from nature, vintage textiles and storytelling.
Oh I do love a good story....
Birds, hares and foxes are a prominent feature in my work, interweaved with patterns, landscapes, flowers and found objects impressed into the clay, to give a strong textile quality to my work.
All of my ceramics are hand built and hand painted using glazes developed from my own recipes and experiments with colour. All of my work is fired to high temperature in an electric kiln.
Originally from Cambridgeshire, I graduated with a B.A (hons) degree in Fine Art from Coventry University. I then lived and worked as a lecturer in Art and Design in Reading for several years before upping sticks and moving to Lincoln to set up my own ceramic studio in 2003.
In 2010, I became a member of the artists co-operative at Harding House Gallery, on Steep Hill in Lincoln where I am also currently one of two exhibition curators for the gallery.
My ceramics can be found in Harding House Gallery where it is on permanent display and other galleries and gift shops throughout the UK.
I really love what I do and I hope you enjoy looking at my work…
