BIO

Producing a fully functioning vessel from a ball of clay using only a wheel and my hands is something that fascinates me; manipulating the clay to create any form I can is a concept I love. My inspiration comes from everyday marks created during our daily routines, particularly in cooking and baking. I enjoy replicating these marks in clay and coloured slip, producing a permanent feature from a temporary, mundane activity.

The words around the rim of the mixing bowls are hand written by my grandma and give a narrative to my work. The recipes are transferred to the bowls using ceramic decals, which are fixed by a firing in the kiln. Ever since I had the idea to produce a range of bake ware I wanted to add something special to it – my grandma’s own handwriting seemed the perfect idea, adding a personal touch to an already unique, handmade collection.
