I make decorative low fired ceramic bowls and brooches in my Nottingham studio from a variety of clays using the press-moulding process.

Following a biscuit firing to 1000ºC, I dip, pour and brush on a range of glazes, including a vibrant matt turquoise glaze and textured 'crawl' glazes (so called because they pull or 'crawl' away from the clay surface as my electric kiln heats up to 1055ºC) to create colourful and tactile surfaces.

I draw inspiration for my work from observations of the natural world I’ve absorbed throughout my life - from childhood memories of seaside holidays spent beachcombing and rockpooling, to things I see around me from day to day such as lichen growing on a stone wall.

I graduated in 1999 with a BA (Hons) in Decorative Arts from Nottingham Trent University.
