Ceramic artist

Brighton, East Sussex


ceramics, mixed media, objects


£25 — £475


I am a ceramic artist based in East Sussex. I completed an MA in Contemporary Crafts in 2012 and am an alumni of the Crafts Council’s Hothouse scheme (2014). I create a range of vessels in porcelain using a muted palette inspired by the chalk and flint colours of the Sussex Downs. I also create framed ‘curious utensils’ and grouped objects that aim to blur the boundaries between the made and the found.
