After graduating from Camberwell College of Art in 2012 I began a two-year apprenticeship under Julian Stair with the support of The Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust.
I am interested in pots, tableware, functional objects. Tableware is interesting for me because of its indisputable link with food. 18th century porcelain production in Europe and the effects it had on dining culture and on studio pottery in the decades that followed fascinates me. The history of pottery is vast and is what inspires me.
I am currently making Porcelain Tableware ranging from simple cups and saucers to complete dinner services, Milk Jugs to Teapots. I try to make my pots with the elegance of 18th Century porcelain while retaining a contemporary aesthetic. All of my work is thrown and trimmed on the potters wheel which means that no two pieces are identical. When the pieces are used the variations becomes apparent and each carefully considered detail reveals itself.
Pottery was at the heart of the industrial revolution and helped transform the way we live our lives. I want to inspire people think about these common objects and what they signify in everyday life.
