Mmmmm. Deliciously Handmade.

Food is a passion of mine. Making pottery is my way to celebrate the tasty little things that make life good; that first cup of coffee with a toasty croissant, a steaming bowl of pasta, a warming cup of good red wine. Our days often begin and end with a cup in hand.

Handmade pots have a spirit about them that lingers from its making and infuses the contents with care and love. Meals just taste better on handmade plates!

My work is a study of the small rituals that make everyday special. I hope you enjoy using them as much as I enjoy their making.

    In my academic and professional life as an architect, ceramics has served as inspiration and creative release. Since the birth of my child and the pause in my career, my energy is refocused on ceramics as the lens through which I study domestic life.

Since the main focus of my work is usability all of my pots are food safe and are microwave and dishwasher safe.

The majority of the work is stoneware, chosen for its durability and water tightness. Some of the more storage oriented pieces are earthenware which is more porous and can absorb water.
