Rachel is a self-taught Ceramic Artist who works from her home studio in Hoylake on the Wirral, making hand-built vessels and sculptures using the traditional process of coiling.
Having always had an interest in interior design and architecture, Rachel loves making beautiful pieces to enhance peoples living spaces. She enjoys the harmony of natural soft forms, biomorphic rounded shapes and calm colour.
Rachel uses a variety of clay bodies in her work but particularly enjoys working with stoneware clays. Although she occasionally uses oxides, slips and smoke firing to enhance her work she tends not to use glazes, enjoying the natural state of the clay and maintaining the connection to the clay and the tactile appreciation of texture.
