Handthrown stoneware pottery, finished with homemade glazes made from local natural materials foraged in the Yorkshire Dales.
I am an accidental potter. I studied Spanish and Intercultural Studies for my undergraduate degree and Rural Development for my Masters, really not pottery! I took a Ceramics 101 course at the end of my bachelor degree in 2005, and fell in love with ceramics. Since that time, I have made use of every opportunity possible to practice pottery, learn from the masters and improve my skills... in northern Japan, in the backwoods of New York State, in Yorkshire. Following the birth of our first daughter, and thanks to the support and encouragement of my husband, I started a pottery of my own!
I am a proud member of the Heritage Crafts Association, which is dedicated to supporting and promoting traditional living heritage crafts and recognised by UNESCO Convention for Intangible Heritage.
In all my work and in all I do and with all my heart... 'Yet, O Lord, you are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand.'
Going GREEN. I post pottery around the world, and I am doing my part in reducing plastic waste: reusing what I've received and recycling what I can't. Please recycle/reuse non-biodegradable packaging you receive from me (that I've reused). I'm making steps to shift to biodegradable packaging. #lovetheearth
