My early work focused on using the emerging technology of digital transfers to marry the unexpected with the traditional; vintage Victoriana china upcycled with found imagery. Each piece is reimagined and refired in the kiln, creating pieces of art beautiful to display but entirely functional.
I now produce my own screen printed bone china range with a 3rd generation pottery in Stoke-on-Trent. Each piece, gilded by hand, keeps at its heart the quality that has made Britain renowned for its ceramic heritage, while adding a 21st century artist-led sensibility to the design process. The close partnership with the pottery, attending to the details of high quality production has proven critical, ensuring a strong reception in overseas markets including South Korea, China, Australia, Germany and the USA.
There are five current collections, a bespoke service and ranges for restaurants and museum shops.
In late 2017, I introduced a range of velvet cushions.
