My Story

Ceramics was never a subject I had in mind when I was younger. I was a National level gymnast! I competed in Russia, America and Canada. I thought I was destined to be a sports coach! After a bad knee injury resulting in me having to give up my dream,I looked into what else I could focus on.

I knew that I loved design and technology rather than Art. I am hopeless with drawing but I preferred using my hands to make 3d objects. After Secondary school I knew that I wanted to continue making. I completed and Art and Design Foundation course in Camberwell College of Art. I worked with a range of materials except clay. The very first time I worked with clay was in University!.

My lovely tutor in Camberwell College of Art recommended a course in Brighton University called 'Materials Practise- Wood, metal, plastics and ceramics'. I was fortunate to be accepted on this course. Throughout my 4 years at University I loved working with all 4 materials but concentrated my time on wood and Ceramics, especially ceramics. I had a brilliant tutor who taught me what I know now.

I graduated with a first class Ceramic and Wood Desgree in 2010. It hasn't been easy since leaving University. I have always had full time/ part time jobs to help me fund my business. I still have a part time job but I am very greatful for having something to support my work and allowing me to grow. I have set up my own little studio in South East London from scratch (with alot of help from my wonderful dad) and I am continuing to make my products there now.

I love what I do and I love seeing and hearing customers enjoy using my work.

Thank you for your support
