“Contrasting tones and subtle forms…”
I create hand-thrown vessels in porcelain, using a pallet of chalk whites, stone greys and dark flint blacks. Some are combined with wire or hand-formed porcelain additions to create unique pieces in tones inspired by the Sussex landscape.

Woodland Vessels

Thrown porcelain vessels, with mixed media additions – making use of real twigs, lichen and other natural, found materials and incorporating tiny porcelain pieces

Stoneware and Porcelain vessels

Thrown porcelain and stoneware vessels with markings, handles or loops – the markings and forms inspired by woven textiles and the handles inspired by those found on objects such as baskets and buckets

Porcelain Twig Vessels

Chalk White and Flint Black porcelain with porcelain twig additions – inspired by broken twigs and fallen tree branches found on woodland walks

All my vessels are individual. These images show examples of work I’ve made.
These exact pieces may not be available but are indicative of the work I produce.

See the ‘About‘ page to find out where my pieces are currently available.
