"Character, warmth and lush glazes"

I specialise in wheel-thrown and handbuilt functional tableware, fired with rich, lush layers of mesmerising glazes and, more recently,
small sculptures, usually with a nature or animal theme, each one filled with character and warmth, and all handmade from start to finish.

I’ve started to merge my sculptures into the tableware, specifically with a whale theme, with the idea of bringing a uniqueness and beauty to everyday things for personal use.

Alongside my own love of working with the wheel and handbuilding, it has now led to teaching beginners’ classes and passing on the joys of working with clay.
