About

Colourful functional ceramics and porcelain jewellery to bring joy into your everyday.

After a long break from clay to explore other creative mediums such as painting and silversmithing, the urge to create with clay became too strong for me to ignore and so, Birdy & Clementine was born.

I find clay to be such an amazing medium for expression. It is a perfect balance between the thinking mind and the expressive mind – science and art working in tandem. Clay is constantly fascinating and often surprising, it is a learning cycle that never ends and offers endless possibilities.

It is from this perspective that I base my creative processes on. Using predominately hand building techniques, every piece I make is then hand painted with patterns that accentuate its character. Really, each Birdy & Clementine piece is like an abstract piece of art – though the colour palette is preconceived, the patterns are not and the spontaneity of this kind of creation ensures that every piece is unique. I love using gold and platinum as rich highlights to bring out the best of the abstract coloured patterns – another element that adds individuality to each piece.

All of my work is fired a minimum of three times in solar assisted electric kilns. This ensures that it is not only functional and durable, but that it is also energy efficient!

I run Birdy & Clementine from my home studio in the hinterland of the Sunshine Coast Queensland. It is nestled in a colourful 80 year old timber house complete with chooks, wildlife, a vege patch and a couple of cats. When I'm not playing with clay (which is often) I'm most likely reading a good book, hanging out with the hubby, eating delicious food (did I mention the hubby is an amazing chef?) or riding my mountain bike on a quiet dirt road.

Welcome to my store and thanks for stopping by!

I create and hand decorate each piece you see in Birdy and Clementine. There will be slight differences in size, shape and colour and that is the beauty and the bonus as no two pieces are ever truly the same so you will own a totally unique item!

My work is functional so they are food safe and I only use lead free glazes. Although they are dishwasher and microwave safe, ( with the exception of pieces with metallic lustre ) hand washing is recommended to ensure their longevity.

Also please note that the colours in digital imagery may vary from computer screen to computer screen which means that the colour of your chosen item(s) may be slightly different in person.
