Currently living and studying in Stoke on Trent, the heart of ceramics in the UK, I work from a local studio to create functional pieces.
I am part of the first cohort at Clay College Stoke, a course developed from a successful apprenticeship scheme which aims to train the next generation of studio potters. My skills, therefore, are constantly evolving as I apply my learning in my own practice.
Prior to this, I studied Three Dimensional Design at Camberwell College of Art where I was able to explore a range of materials. In my final year, I became particularly interested in ceramics.
After graduation, I became a technician at Turning Earth, an open access studio in east London. Selling my work in markets all over London and exhibiting my institutions including London Design Week. After spending two and a half years at Turning Earth I decided that it was really important for me to have a more formal training in my craft and wanted to experience a range of firing and processes which prompted my move to Clay College.
I currently supply to a range of retailers in London including the Design Museum and Grace and Thorn. Ceramic is such a unique material for its presence in everyday life; holding it to our lips or walking on tiles. I love being able to make my mark on such a culturally significant material and I am excited to see what the future holds.
