Path and Inspiration I first discovered a passion for ceramics whilst living and working in Japan. Upon returning to London I completed a MA in History of Art at the Courtauld Institute of Art before embarking on a two year HND programme specialising in Ceramics. In 2021 I completed a year long apprenticeship at North Street Potters, London under the guidance of potter Naine Woodrow with a focus on production throwing.
Process and Practice I am interested in both functional and decorative ceramics, and the intersection between the two. My non-functional work uses clay to explore ideas of memory, the passage of time, and a sense of place. Employing a range of ceramic processes including both throwing and slip casting, I enjoy using organic additions, oxide powders and matte glazes to create subtle surfaces indicative of the marks and traces left by natural forces.
