I took up ceramics in 2008 at the Putney School of Art here in London where I was born and now live and work. In 2015 I moved to The Kiln Rooms, a shared studio in Peckham Rye, where I am at present.
I am fascinated and inspired by the process of time upon things. The beautiful marks and colours created by age, decay and weathering particularly on rocks and stone. I seek to capture something of this quiet beauty in my work
I hand coil one-off sculptural vessels leaving the surfaces rough and marked. Continually exploring and experimenting I apply oxides and glazes in multiple layers which when fired create unpredictably beautiful, stony, weathered and rock-like surfaces as if the pieces have been dug up from the earth or sea. Each piece is completely unique.
