I am a ceramic artist working from my garden studio in rural Sussex creating unique hand crafted one-off pieces. I am inspired by the natural world around me. I’m an avid walker and I love to spend time amongst the trees, clouds, light and sound which fuels my creativity. I feel deeply connected to the earth. Clay has primal qualities and is so dynamic.
My designs have a natural flow and rhythm, they are as unique as every tree, leaf and flower.
My signature style is to 'throw' and then to 'pinch'. And my creations are bowls.
When I am working I love to have music around me. The rhythm and melodies guide my pinching.
I’m a massage therapist and I want to create something tangible that represents natural and organic forms, so making bowls seems a good starting-point. Something that holds energy; functionally useful; earthy and asymmetrical inspired by a greater force. Most of my pots make themselves and become a meditation. I love when people hold my creations and 'feel' them. I like that people appreciate them in a visceral sense where words are not necessary.
I have always been interested in Photography and most of the pictures on this site are mine (apart from the photos of me!).
