I design and produce my own ceramics and currently work out of the WASPS studios in Glasgow, Scotland. Each piece is hand made and finished and is therefore unique. I like to create tactile pieces with a combination of textures including dry matt effects, contrasting enamels glossy and abstract glazes, and I use a range of finishes to bring out the individual characteristics of the design. My favourite techniques include pinching, slab building, layering, and tearing, and many pieces feature a combination of these to achieve a particular look or style. I am fascinated with the diversity of clay and draw inspiration from the disharmony between nature and the built environment. I often use leaves or fabric to create decorative functional vessels, which may be offset by more formal lines or darker colouring.
