Ceramic Organic


I make decorative ceramic pieces inspired by hidden or overlooked details. My favourite explorations are of natural structures like mushroom gills and barnacles.
Visiting woodland and coastline I gather anything that intrigues me or sparks ideas.  My studio space is akin to a Cabinet of Curiosities.  Test pieces and finished works sit alongside found objects and materials, collectively informing and inspiring practice.

I work directly with selected items using a magnifying glass and microscope to reveal the intricacies of their form. Details are explored through drawing and mark making on paper and in clay. Each new outcome acts as a catalyst for further exploration. I curate the most interesting pieces as collections and standalone works, often combining them with natural materials to highlight their precious origins and create displays for the viewer to treasure.
