I am a ceramic maker and designer specialising in porcelain. I make a range of functional and decorative ceramics such as hares, birdies, quirky bowls, jugs, spoons and ceramic letters. I make all my own work from my garden studio in Lincoln. Each piece is meticulously crafted and glazed by hand using both traditional and contemporary techniques. Each item is unique and no two are exactly the same.
I am inspired by fairy tales and fables and I love playing around with different combinations of colour. All my work is handbuilt and the relief pattern in each piece is created by impressing clay into handmade plaster moulds, linocuts and Indian textile printing blocks. Other textures including shells, stones, wood and leaves are also impressed into the clay. I use a wide range of glazes which are developed from my own recipes and experiments with glaze materials. Some items have two or three glazes applied and may be fired a number of times in order to achieve a particular effect.
I have a B.A.(Hons) degree in Fine Art and have always worked within art and design, both as a lecturer and practising ceramicist. My work can be found in galleries and gift shops throughout the UK.
