About this project

Although in my former ceramics practice I made vessels, not animals, I always loved Staffordshire wares. Staffordshire pottery animals are so exuberantly joyful, characterful, vital and obviously made by hand that I cannot help but be inspired by them. Many of those traits correspond quite closely to the character I want to create in much of my work, so I couldn’t resist making textile versions of the ceramic originals.
