Fay loves to experiment with clay, exploring different perspectives of nature and travelling around the world collecting curio for inspiration. Porcelain is mainly utilised in her works to create intimate installations and customised relation gifts. She believes objects tell stories of people’s lives, often holding personal and collective meanings of a particular time, place, and event.

Fay runs mobile miniature pottery workshops. Her aim is to share ceramics with a wider audience, to make it more accessible for all to be creative with clay.
