"colours give a lovely, natural background to the delicate botanical images"
I am a ceramicist living in Bristol and have been making & selling ceramics since 1996. I began working as ceramics technician at the City of Bath College in ’94 where I went on to lecture for 11 years, until moving to America and Canada for my husband’s work before settling back in Bristol at the end of 2012. My work is made from red and white earthenware clays to create functional ceramics and jewellery. These colours give a lovely, natural background to the delicate botanical images produced by monoprint and scraffito techniques, each one slightly different in line and tone. I fire the white earthenware to 1120 and the red to 1160, resulting in a lovely, toasty terracotta.
I run pottery classes, private lessons and children’s parties in my studio at home. For details see my website.
