I am based in the North East of England.
Inspired by the North East coast, I create both decorative and functional ceramics. Utilising drift wood and seaweed, I create magical and beautiful markings on my hand built or altered pieces. Through constant experimentation, I produce beautiful glazes for my functional hand thrown ware.
My functional ware is thrown on the potter’s wheel using white stoneware clay. and stamped with my makers mark. It is then biscuit fired in the kiln to give some rigidity then glazed in one one of my hand mixed glazes. It is then refired to a temperature of around 1270 C.
The resulting pieces are durable heat proof and dishwasher proof.
