I am a ceramicist with a love of the vessel in its many forms- the idea of containment fascinates and continually challenges me. Although I began my ceramics journey as a hand builder, I found throwing on the wheel suited
my exploration better.
After completing my degree, I founded the ceramics studio Archway Ceramics, along with a group of fellow graduates. I combined working there with teaching until I had my family. Following a stint at Kingsgate Workshops, I now work from my studio at home, alongside running ceramics workshops for children and adults.
As well natural and urban landscapes, I find inspiration in the seemingly random and mundane – rusty metal tools, peeling layers of paint, found objects that suggest a fragment of a story. This stimulus is reflected in how I glaze my vessels; surfaces are gradually built through layering glazes and multi firing, ensuring each piece is unique.
