Information

Wheel thrown and hand built ceramics. I love experimenting with different shapes. I make my own glazes and also use wild clay & sea glass as a glaze.

In my studio on a farm near St. Columb Major I make all sorts of functional ceramics on the potters wheel. I love experimenting with different shapes and make cups, bowls, plates, vases, candleholders etc. I make my own glazes and am drawn to calm tones. I also use wild clay & sea glass in my glazes. I love how these materials make every pot totally unique and create a strong connection with the various locations I found them.

The clay and the process itself inspire me a lot. When throwing on the wheel there’s an interesting tension of being in control and being guided by what the clay naturally wants to do. I enjoy figuring out what shapes I can make and how to improve it all the time. I just love seeing the transformation from a lump of clay to a solid piece of ceramics.

Last year I also started handbuilding, which gives me the opportunity to explore other shapes.
