About Me

My work is inspired by the wonderful shapes and colours we see in nature as well as those we live with in our own homes. I work with stoneware and porcelain to create objects for both practical and decorative use. The calming turquoise, dark marines and refreshing greens of the changing Mediterranean sea of my childhood have all been a strong influence in my choice of glazes.

The discoveries of a huge variety of natural seed pods during my travels in Africa, as well as elsewhere, are a continuing inspiration. My tactile ceramic representations are an interpretation of these wonders of nature - they fit easily in the palm of a hand and even rattle with a gentle shake. They are created from different types of clay and fired by a variety of both traditional and weird experimental techniques which give each one a unique sound, touch and finish.

I have a studio nestled in the heart of the creative Stroud Valleys where I also live with my husband, daughter and dog.
