Ceramics / Pottery

Porcelain and stoneware handthrown ceramics, both functional and one off pieces. Clean forms with a contemporary feel.

I’m a small batch potter based near Saffron Walden, Essex. I hand throw all of my work on the potters wheel using stoneware and porcelain, which is then fired to 1,240C. I particularly love the transformation from raw clay to a highly glazed finished surface, and my work contains unglazed surfaces to highlight this contrast.

The resulting pieces are highly tactile and are made to be used, handled and loved.
