I’ve been drawn to clay at various points in my life, from growing up on Kiln Ride, to secondary school sculpting and baking clay beads on campfires, but I never pursued it further than that. It’s only after going to evening classes after having my children that I’ve really found my way in ceramics, by finding the joy in creating functional forms. Being furloughed for much of the past year has made me realise how much I want to continue my work with clay, leading me to buy my first kiln in August. I am fascinated by the almost limitless forms, functions, colours and finishes that clay can create, and how it remembers the touch of the maker.
All my work is made in my conservatory studio, and I’m constantly inspired by the beautiful Cotswolds scenery surrounding me: the rolling hills, vast views, and lush greenery. My work is all functional, and I’m drawn to elegant simplicity. Ceramics can last a lifetime and beyond, so I want to create pieces that will look good no matter when or where they are used.
