Inspiration
I had seen concrete bubbles made around balls plastic balls. I set out to make one out of clay slip. My early efforts created fragile objects that broke on touch.  Finally I perfected the technique into these lovely delicate but sturdy objects.

About the Author
I’ve pursued many creative routes over the years but it wasn’t until 2013 that my love of clay really took hold. My work is hand built using a variety of techniques from slab building to pinching and coil construction, with each piece taking on its own unique form. Having been a wild gardener for over 20 years I’m inspired by nature and the changing seasons and this really influences the body of my ceramics work. I also like to surprise and delight with more humorous pieces. I find the physicality of moulding clay and the unpredictability of firing and glazing so exciting. It is this excitement that entices me back in to my studio each day. For more information about me, or to request a commission please get in touch.
