I am a designer-maker specializing in functional ceramics to fit comfortably in the home. The whole range is mix and match, consisting of kitchen ware and bathroom accessories.
When making my own work, my approach is relaxed and playful, and I hope this translates through to the finished pieces. Slips are brushed on, sgraffito designs drawn into the surface and clay spriggs motifs applied, making the pieces tactile, a deliberate consideration. All making happens at the wet clay stage. After a biscuit firing I don’t add anything else to the surface except for a simple lead-free glaze.
