Each piece of my work is a canvas for decoration and collage as I combine drawings with found, vintage ephemera. I am inspired by nostalgia, paper ephemera, vintage textiles and a love of drawing. I have always been fascinated by objects that have a history.
Nostalgic themes that I constantly revisit in my work are afternoon tea, the seaside, gardening, and my love of traditional blue and white pottery.
The porcelain pieces I create are unique, one-offs produced using a variety of slip casting and hand-building techniques. All incorporate my own drawings with found nostalgic imagery by using both hand painting and transfers, and many have the added opulence of gold luster.
Since setting up my studio in 2009 I have exhibited throughout the UK and my work has been featured in magazines, such as Period Living, Essential Living and Homes & Antiques.
My work places a contemporary twist on an old technique of getting imagery onto ceramic. By taking the time to play with known techniques I have developed my own voice through my pieces.
