I'm a self-taught potter currently based in rural Shropshire, where I make functional pottery with a modern twist from my studio in a converted milking parlour.
Sometimes we forget the simple pleasure of using things created lovingly by hand. Taking such a basic material as clay, and then creating something beautiful from it, is simultaneously grounding and inspiring. I try to convey this feeling in my work.
I believe beautiful handmade pottery shouldn't sit on the shelf - the joy is making it part of everyday life. I use a high-fired stoneware clay, and my glazes are food-safe and dishwasher-safe, so that each and every piece is ready to be used and enjoyed.
