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

I am both a passionate potter, currently studying my Masters in Fine Art Ceramics at Bath Spa University and I am also a Reiki Master Teacher. These combined qualifications allow me to create in clay using powerful healing intention.

We all know that art is good for the Soul, but I take this a step further. I harness nature’s beauty by using real leaves in every piece. Furthermore, I infuse universal life force energy (Reiki) into the clay as I work and also use the scientific theory of entrainment ‘Quantum Touch’ as a method to transfer high frequencies of energy and intention. Moreover, nature’s code, the Fibonacci sequence, has recently become a strong influence in my fern collection.

My making methods allow me to play with the dance between control and freedom while throwing and hand building layered pieces on the potters wheel; listening to how the clay wants to move, while creating a pleasing form – a fluent conversation between clay and intention. I work in mixed clays and porcelain, firing to stoneware temperatures and my decoration techniques focus on layering with oxides, glazes and lustres.

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