Contemporary hand crafted ceramics
Ceramics inspired by my surroundings on the edge of the moor...
A 'stone' series - mixed clays evocative of the moorland landscape and terrain.
A 'mocha diffusion' series - capturing the delicacy and intricacy of local ferns and lichen.
A 'textured' series - grogged stoneware from a small clay pit in the south-west
A 'granite' series - granite fragments embedded into the surface of bespoke vessels in porcelain.
Please do get in touch if you would like a unique piece made for you. It is a pleasure to discuss making something specially to order.
Ceramics - Designer/Maker
In my remote moorland studio, I make wheel thrown and hand decorated ceramics. If you visit my Instagram account, I hope you can see how the Dartmoor terrain and flora influence my work. I feel privileged to live in this beautiful area, and to be able to spend my time making carefully hand crafted ceramics. I have been working for over a decade, and trained formally before undertaking an apprenticeship for a year with a local potter. I make small batches of ceramics - including tableware - and a smaller number of bespoke pieces. Most of my work is high fired in an electric kiln but on occasion I use the alternative firing techniques of raku and barrel firing to produce vessels, which although fired to lower temperature, are sealed and functional.
A limited range of work is periodically available here online - with shop openings announced on Instagram/Facebook.
My gallery outlets generally stock a wider range of work. Please contact galleries individually if you are making a special trip.
