My journey with clay started about 4 years ago and continues to evolve. When approaching ceramics, I often feel like a small child in a sweetshop, so many flavours, so many different things to try. But it feels daunting with towering jars above me, forever reaching for new flavours. 

When I am working with clay, everything disappears. I am totally enchanted. My work is a practice of loving, nurturing and creating something into being, and then totally letting go of all expectations and attachments (at least I try) as that piece enters the kiln or the fire and is transformed into something new and often unexpected.


I love the elemental aspect of pottery, connecting with earth, air, water and fire. It helps me to feel present in my body, noticing every movement and the effect that has on the clay.

I have been mainly working in stoneware, creating functional tableware. Recently I have been exploring more decorative pieces with textures and firing outdoors in a pit or barrel. This gives a variety of effects which can not be tamed. Each piece is unique and can not be replicated.
