My work consists of soft functional forms for using in our day to day lives, and I hope connect us with our everyday things . Sharing food in a serving dish or bowl, drinking from your favourite mug brings about ritual, comfort and hopefully joy to our lives. Within the creation of food, there is such an act of generosity and love for ourselves and others. I think cooking is an art and I like to celebrate it with special handmade vessels to use for food and drinks.
After studying at Falmouth University, I completed a pottery apprenticeship in Cornwall. I now live in Axminster, Devon but work from my studio in Bridport. I wood fire my pottery with a group of potters in Dorset. The process involves loading the wood kiln over two days to reach the top temperature of 1280 degrees. During the firing, ash from the wood falls over the inside of the kiln and creates organic surfaces on the pots.
