Raised on the wind-swept and rain-soaked Isle of Man, I create contemporary hand-made tableware intended to be used and embraced in daily life.
After studying and working on Australia’s Gold Coast, I returned to the Isle of Man to establish my studio practice. There I spent five years working with the island’s leading artisan food and drink start-ups, cultural institutions and private clients.
Ten years on from starting out as a ceramic artist, I am now based permanently in Halls Gap, Victoria, Australia. My hand-thrown pieces feature intricate, vibrant designs inspired by this beautiful place, applied by hand using a mix of techniques in multiple layers.
The finished mugs, bowls and vases carry coffee, granola and flowers, along with stories and a sense of place. My customers tell me they create daily rituals around them. To me, this is the magic.
I launched a subscription service through Patreon in 2019, to invest in experimental projects. Pieces are also available to purchase through my online shop.
