I have recently graduated from the University of Sunderland, where I was awarded a First Class Degree in Glass and Ceramics in 2020. I have gone on to set up my own pottery studio, where I create hand thrown, functional and sculptural pieces on the potter's wheel with a focus on form, colour, pattern and texture, taking inspiration from my picturesque, local surroundings of North Yorkshire.
I enjoy exploring the area and finding inspiration from the natural beauty of the flora, fauna and geology in my local landscape. I then transform this into designs on functional porcelain vessels, using blue slip and sgraffito techniques.
I have also been inspired by under seascapes, using porcelain slip trailing or laser engraving to depict these patterns and creating a series of pieces that are textural, tactile and visually interesting.
My pieces are intended for the home and to be used everyday. I hope that they bring a little piece of my paradise into your home
