I create hand thrown forms which are carved and altered before glazing. I take
inspiration from natural forms such as flowers and lizards. Dahlias are a particular
source of inspiration for me, as they represent elegance and beauty in the Victorian
language of flowers.
I have become increasingly interested in geometric patterns, as the tessellation of
shapes fascinates me. My work incorporates geometric patterns and natural forms,
in an abstract style.
I began my ceramics career in Wolverhampton, where I studied for a BAHons in Ceramics.
I continued to finish a Masters in Ceramics, also at Wolverhampton.
The next step in my journey was to work for Peter
Following this I moved to Devon to work for Penny
Simpson for 3 months.
I then worked at the Leach Pottery as part of the production team, until February 2016,
when I moved to Chatham, Kent, to set up my own studio at Nucleus Arts Centre.
Nucleus Arts Centre is a collection of studios containing artists using a range of different media and processes. It is set on the Highstreet of Chatham and also has a cafe for members of the public.
