Handmade pottery from Somerset

FOLLOWING MY DREAMS... 

I GAVE UP THE 'DAY JOB' IN APRIL 2015 AND HAVE BEEN WORKING HARD IN MY GARDEN SHED STUDIO TO MAKE LOVELY THINGS TO DECORATE YOUR HOME ever since.

I started pottery as a hobby nearly 12 years ago. After finishing my fine art degree, I was working in a 9-5 office job and needed to do something creative to keep me sane so I tried an evening  pottery class and was hooked. 

I design and hand-make everything from my studio shed,  just outside of Bath, Somerset. I would describe my work as modern rustic with organic undertones.  Growing up by the coast, the textures and colours of my favourite Devon beaches are a constant inspiration.  Each individual pot is lovingly crafted to have it's own unique characteristics and personality, no two pieces are exactly alike making each one a little work of art.
