A lover of the natural world, with a penchant for plants and flowers, I combine my passions to produce beautiful (and often functional) tactile porcelain vessels, vases and planters - designed to be everyday objects as well as heirlooms of the future.
Much of my work is 'slip-cast' which means that I use a mould (that I have made myself) as the starting point of a design, which I will then embellish, carve into, decorate with coloured clays or glazes.
Inspiration strikes in the crest of a wave, the radiance of a shell, rugged stones, sea-foam; many of these are hinted at in my designs. In addition to these coastal influences my work is informed by a love of pattern and texture - dots, circles, and leaves feature prominently.
Whilst I love the purity and simplicity of white porcelain, I am also excited by the colour potential of glazes and have started to experiment with soft blues, mint greens, sea-blues and pinks as my work develops a wider palette.
I work out of my studio in Birmingham.
