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. My pots are also available to purchase through my online shop, as well as at festivals and markets around Victoria. To learn how to commission a bespoke piece please get in touch.
