I am a local ceramic artist with a love of making unique vases. I am passionate about making pieces that have been split and then rejoined together using a variety of fastenings from buttons and bolts to zips. Some of my work uses mixed media, other pieces are collections of pots that are sewn together, whilst some are unusual forms.
I love to make vases that are functional but also are a talking point when not used for their primary function. My work uses the versatility of clay. I use numerous clay bodies, shapes, textures and colour, all of which add different dimensions to the final finish. I think that my pieces are aesthetically pleasing but also are very tactile. They fool the senses about how they are formed and what they are made of.
I hope that you will enjoy looking at my work as much as I have enjoyed creating it.
