I am a Sussex based designer maker, originally trained in graphics at Bath Academy of Art.

After a period of primary school teaching, I now work with clay. I hand-build my ceramics using red earthenware and explore techniques of masking and layering coloured slips to create images. These are inspired by the patterns and colours in nature, especially from seed heads, leaves and flowers. A transparent glaze is applied before a second firing.

I also uses porcelain paper clay- applying different textures and then oxide washes and glazes. These are then fired to stoneware temperature.

These unique pieces are to be used and enjoyed.
