About this project

I create hand-thrown vessels in porcelain, using a soft pallet of chalk whites, stone greys and dark flint blacks. Some are combined with willow to create unique pieces in natural tones inspired by the Sussex landscape.

Blurring the boundaries between the made and the found, these vessels include willow, twigs, found objects and ceramic additions creating pieces with a fragile and otherworldly appearance.

Creating a palette in grey, these vessels are thrown on the wheel using porcelain with added oxides and glazes that reflect the chalk and flint landscape of the Sussex Downs. Several pieces include willow handles and additions gathered from the Low Weald.
