Hand built ceramics, with a focus on coil building. Using a variety of different clays including stoneware and porcelain.
I studied ceramic design at Central St Martins, graduating in 2013. Since then I have developed my skills through working at many different studios and potteries. All of my ceramics are hand built in Edinburgh
What craft do you work with?
Ceramics – Clay
What inspires you to work with this craft?
I draw on an exploration of the slow geological processes, the movements of the earth that create the clay I work with. This is together with exploring the landscapes and natural forms around me in Scotland.
How do you start your creative process?
How would you best describe your workspace and what tools could you not do without?
All of my ceramics are hand built in Edinburgh with the vast majority being thrown on the wheel, which I have been doing since I was introduced to it during the foundation art and design course at Newcastle College
Are there new techniques you would like to try?
I have also recently taken to coil building, enjoying the slower nature of the process, this is something I have developed during the lockdown period from my home
