"Smoke Fired Ceramic Homewares and Installations"
I am based in Sydney, Australia. My work is centred around pushing the boundaries of public perception on the capabilities of ceramics. Clay is a nuanced material that transcends the domestic environment and confidently straddles the perceived divide between art and design.

My career began by completing a Bachelor of Visual Art at Sydney College of the Arts majoring in ceramics and since then my practice has developed and strengthened. I strive to inject my practice with subtlety and a whimsical strength which leads me to incorporate materials ranging from metal to plants. My work is stocked in retail stores, private residences and I have shown in group exhibitions.

What excites me is subverting the perception that ceramics has in the broader community. and opening up a dialogue by producing works which are approachable, exciting, fun and sexy.
