"When I am working with clay, everything disappears. I am totally enchanted I love the elemental aspect of pottery, connecting with earth, air, water and fire"
My journey with clay started back in 2017 when attending an evening class in Totnes and I became instantly hooked!
I create functional ware and also more decorative items which are fired outdoors in a barrel. This gives a variety of smoke effects with each piece being unique and unable to be replicated.
When I am working with clay, everything disappears. I am totally enchanted. I love the elemental aspect of pottery, connecting with earth, air, water and fire.
My work is a practice of loving, nurturing and creating something into being, then totally letting go of all expectations and attachments (at least I try) as that piece enters the kiln/fire and is transformed into something new and often unexpected.
For me ceramics is the perfect personification of mindfulness practice, it helps me feel more connected to the earth, to my body and it supports my mental wellness.
