"Oxide-coloured handmade functional ceramic art revealing the naked surface of the clay, with rich colours reminiscent of the South West."
I am a ceramic artist based who has relocated to Dorset. I have produced aesthetic art pieces for many years but have rediscovered throwing and become struck by the unique appeal of ceramics as functional art. Inspired by the landscape of the South West, I create my Home collection to explore the point where beauty and practical purpose meet. I have always been fascinated by the naked surface of clay. I add oxides to the clay body to create the exterior colours without having to mask the natural texture of the material. In developing the glazes, I have discovered a rich palette of colours which are reminiscent of the South West itself. It is my hope that this work is art which will be touched, used and treasured.
