All pieces are handmade in my Oxfordshire garden studio and are inspired by the vintage ceramics that I love to collect and by the natural world. I enjoy throwing at the wheel and experimenting with shape and form, working in stoneware and porcelain. The exhibition will show a range of my work. I also teach pottery and am happy to take commissions.
Growing up as the daughter of an antiques dealer, my childhood home was crammed with boxes spilling over with auction room treasures. Victorian vases, Art Deco tea sets and mid-century pots surrounded me and their design, craftsmanship and beauty has had a lasting influence. Before becoming a full time potter and pottery teacher, I worked as a landscape architect for 25 years. Designing spaces and considering form and function and texture and colour was a part of my daily life and I am sure must influence the pottery that I create today.
