I was born and raised in the north of Scotland so I feel quite at home up on the lush and sometimes chilly slopes of Kunanyi, Hobart's mountain, where I have lived and worked for six years.
I trained in architecture before I took a sidestep into ceramics bringing much of what I learned relating to functional design, materiality and form into this new expression. I still approach my work from a similar mindset.
Being a designer maker gives me the unbroken connection with the ideas and physical materials from beginning to end, something I always craved in architecture.
All my work is created on a pottery wheel, finished by hand and fired under a live flame in a gas kiln. This process creates infinite opportunity for subtle variation in the forms and surface finish of each piece.
I aim to provide my clients with bespoke, timeless pieces which add quiet character, richness and tactility to their everyday moments.
