I am a ceramic artist, living and working in Northumberland. You can contact me here.
I grew up in rural Perthshire, but now live on the outskirts of a little village in the North Tyne Valley in Northumberland, where I have my studio. Having trained as a scientist, I took the plunge to change careers, and absolutely love it.
My ceramics are inspired by textures and the natural world. The challenge of constructing a piece is what I enjoy. Childhood holidays on the Mull of Kintyre gave me a passion for collecting pebbles and sea glass which are often incorporated into my work. During holidays abroad I have collected special objects which I use to texture my pieces. Using wallpapers from my childhood home is my favourite way of creating a special piece. I love to build up layers of texture, then use multiple glazes to decorate the object. I work mainly in porcelain, but also in stoneware for my larger pieces.
I create both functional and decorative pieces, plus jewellery and Christmas decorations. If you would like to commission a special piece, either for yourself to fit in with a specific style in your home, or as a bespoke gift, then please do get in touch.
Every piece I produce is unique, individually designed and handmade. Please visit my showcase to see examples of my work including vessels, vases, bowls, houses and jewellery.
