"Observing the transitioning beauty of leaves and trees never ceases to inspire my collections"

I make ceramic tableware, planters, vases and jewellery using the impression from real leaves. Every piece I make is unique, like the leaf that informs each plate, wall planter, vase or pendant. Observing the transitioning beauty of leaves and trees never ceases to inspire my collections. I combine various clays, layers of oxide, glaze and lustre to mimic the seasonal colours and textures that are revealed through the seasons.

My signature vases are inspired by the relationship between transitioning nature and our own lives; the transformation and decay of leaves into skeleton structures; much like how the lines on our faces tell the story of our own lives.

I show my collections at shows and galleries nationally. My tableware has been aired on BBC2 and ITV and I teach online pottery courses to students world wide.
