My name is Maxine. I’m passionate about pottery and I specialise in making unique, hand-made pieces at my studio in Oxfordshire. They’re created using a variety of methods; slab building, sculpting and wheel-throwing.
Like many artists, I am greatly inspired by the beauty of the natural world and it’s textures and shapes are echoed in much of my work. I also make pieces surrounding my love of yoga. Mindfulness and positive energy are poured into the creation of each of my pieces.
I have always been a creative person and tried my hand at many different crafts over time. However, upon picking up my first block of clay I was transfixed, and my love for ceramics continues to grow.
My style is realism, and I like my pieces to look authentic. I love to make functional objects with a twist. Items people can admire in their home or wear and still be a decorative part of every day life.
