BIO

This collection of slip cast and handbuilt ceramics vessels, stems from my growing fascination with plants, and a desire to surround myself with them. The prickly pear and other desert plants, were the inspiration behind my mark making and led to the development of my dot patterns. I naturally began to replicate these dots in ceramics, by slip trailing them onto slip cast and hand built forms. I feel a natural connection with clay and I find the repetitive nature of ‘dotting’ to be therapeutic. Combining my love of both ceramics and plants, has led to a collection of colourful, tactile, and unique indoor plant pots.
