Each bowl and cup is handmade, each piece is different. and has an organic, not a precise, shape. Each piece is described individually in the shop section, where I highlight specific aspects of each, which some might see as flaws, others might see as a quirk, a rarity, or a stroke of luck.
I have been making ceramic tableware in London since 1995. My inspiration for the minimal decoration on my work comes from the tides and estuaries in North Essex, my adopted homelend: looking at how the balance between mudflats, water, river-banks and horizons change as the tides come and go twice a day.
Like the tides, our days are marked in times for meals and times for drinking tea and coffee: by using handmade cups and bowls, those everyday moments are made more celebratory: . Thank you for visiting this website, please stay in touch.
All good wishes,
