Path and Inspiration
My other freelance work relies on me working on other people's creative projects, which meant I miss out on my own creative outlet. I began the hunt for something I could have complete creative control over and preferably away from a screen. I decided to try a pottery class in July 2021 and never looked back! I love how sitting down to do some pottery transports your mind to another place, forgetting about anything else. I am a big nature lover and I like to include that influence in my work
Process and Practice
I enjoy hand-building as well as throwing my pieces. I love carving into my work and adding textures. The carving process is very therapeutic for me, I don't want my pieces to be too controlled or perfect so I tend to go with the flow when I begin carving and let the piece take its shape in the moment. I like each piece to be unique and have its own character.
