I came to ceramics as a second career and graduated from University of Westminster (Harrow) in 2011.
My work is about finding beauty in the ordinary. It’s about the small things and recognising the accidental poetry in the unnoticed and overlooked. Living in the city this is often found in apparently insignificant details of the built environment – the way a surface has weathered, the juxtaposition of materials, the sculptural qualities of found forms.
Taking an experimental approach to ceramic processes and materials to reflect the forms, colours and textures I find in these places, pieces are mainly hand-built and often fired multiple times. At their best they capture the unexpected, quiet beauty of neglected environments and found objects.
