Working from my garden studio in Shrewsbury, Shropshire I create a range of porcelain bowls with bold designs in black and white and soft blues and greens. From chunky platters to small delicate shell-like bowls; as well as range of porcelain jewellery, including earrings, pendants, brooches and buttons.
Fired Porcelain has a warm soft quality, reflecting light, and when polished, the surface is very tactile, which lends itself to jewellery making and small delicate bowls. I seek to enhance these qualities of porcelain and to reflect nature in my work. The whiteness of a perfectly round pebble found on a beach, the seemingly scratched patterns found in stones and the smoothness of sea-worn shells inspire the design and surface quality of my work.
